Jacksonville dental office donates to breast cancer foundation

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – A visit to a local Jacksonville dentist may help someone in the fight for their life.

Family Dental Care NC is donating one dollar to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for every patient they see during the month of October.

Their office manager’s grandmother passed away from the disease and one of her good friends is currently battling it.

She says everyone knows someone affected by cancer and this is a unique way of giving back.

“Our patients are great with it, the kids look forward to putting their names on the ribbon and understanding what the cause is for,” said Leslie Lytle.

The dental office has raised about $50 a day and its goal is to reach over $1500 by the end of the month.
