LCI Team Teresa
Welcome to our team fundraising page!
On June 3, 2017, our team is participating in the Keep Pounding 5K. 100% of net proceeds from the Keep Pounding 5K will benefit cancer research, treatment, and patient services at Levine Children's Hospital and Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte, NC. By supporting the Keep Pounding 5K, our team is helping individuals with cancer get treatment locally where they can stay close to their support networks and families.
Our team "LCI Team Teresa" is named after Dr. Teresa Flippo-Morton, a beloved breast cancer surgeon who died in 2015 only 33 days after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Teresa completed her surgical training at Carolinas Medical Center in 1991 and devoted her life's work to advancing the art and practice of surgery in our region. In 2005, she focused her practice on surgical diseases of the breast, including an estimated 2,300 women with breast cancer, many of whom credit her with saving their lives. She served in many teaching and leadership roles at Carolinas Medical Center, and will forever be remembered for her compassionate and caring attitude - mixed with a wicked-smart common sense approach to life.
Please consider making a charitable contribution to this worthy cause! Your donation will be credited to our team's fundraising goal.
