Brief: Memorial Fund To Honor Lawson

For the last 20 years, The Walk to Fight Breast Cancer has helped support mammograms and other diagnostic screening for Alexandria women who are uninsured or not adequately insured. To honor the Walk’s founder, Vola Lawson, who died in December 2013, the Walk will be renamed. A fund has been created in her memory, the Vola Lawson Breast Cancer Memorial Fund.

Since its inception in 1994, the Walk has helped more than 8,000 uninsured Alexandria women receive free mammograms and other diagnostic screenings. Over the last several years, the need has increased while donations have seen a decrease, resulting in the fund’s near depletion. This year, the Vola Lawson Breast Cancer Fund will participate in ACTS Spring2Action Giving Day, on Wednesday, April 9.
