This week, the Buffalo Bills and ECMC have teamed up to intercept cancer in recognition of the NFL’s Crucial Catch Campaign, by creating several events that seek to generate awareness and increase cancer prevention. On Wednesday, Oct. 18, the focus was breast cancer. To support the cause, the ECMC Mammography Coach was on-site at Dunn Tire in Olean to provide free breast cancer screenings.
Throughout the day, members of the community took a proactive approach to their health by stopping by to receive a screening.

In attendance at the dedication ceremony were a few special guests including, the Kelly family, ECMC caregivers and some of the physicians and nurses who attended to Jim during his cancer treatment.
The Kelly Tough Room will provide a source of inspiration to patients and their families who receive care at ECMC.
