Owners Tom and Sue Krygsheld held their annual October fundraiser, donating a portion of the proceeds from service calls to the center’s breast diagnostic imaging fund, which aids local uninsured women in receiving imaging and biopsy services.

On behalf of the company, Illiana Heating & Air Conditioning general manager Kevin Frump and installation manager Dan Krygsheld presented a $4,650 check to Mary Nicholson, MD, medical director of the Women’s Diagnostic Center.

“We are grateful for the generous support from partners such as Illiana Heating & Air Conditioning,” said Nicholson. “This donation will aid in providing imaging for those who may not receive care otherwise. Early detection of breast cancer provides the best chance for treatment with favorable outcomes and this donation will help us serve more women with the care they need.”

Since 2011, the Krygshelds have provided donations to the Women’s Diagnostic Center as a result of their October fundraiser. Diagnostic imaging has been made available to women with that funding and more than one has turned out to be positive for breast cancer – providing care where there wouldn’t have been an opportunity otherwise.
