At Southeast Radiation Oncology Group (SERO), we don’t just invest in the latest diagnostic and treatment options in the field of cancer, we also invest in cancer research and support fundraising groups to help find a cure. Every year, we sponsor a number of events and charities seeking to make a difference in the community and move us a step forward in curing cancer.
Most recently, SERO supported the event Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer, a golf and tennis event supporting breast cancer research and treatment, by sponsoring hole 18 of their golf course.
Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer was held late last month and invited everyone in the Charlotte, North Carolina area to participate in golf and tennis clinics throughout the day. The event was generously hosted at the Cramer Mountain Club by the Ladies Golf Association and was a resounding success, demonstrating everyone’s commitment to fighting back against cancer.
An Overview of the Event
Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer was held on September 21st of this year and is a regular event in the community. The event lasted a full day with all proceeds benefiting the Woman in Pink, with numerous activities throughout the day. Just a few of the activities included:

All of the clinics were run by the outstanding tennis and golf pros who donated their services to the event in order to support cancer research and treatment. SERO was honored to play a critical role in making sure this event turned into a resounding success, including sponsoring hole 18.
SERO’s Role in the Community
At Southeast Radiation Oncology Group, we know cancer treatment involves more than just targeting the disease. In order to fully beat cancer, it is important to take care of the entire person and support organizations that are helping people fight cancer or find a cure.
To that end, SERO keeps its eyes open for opportunities to impact the health and wellness of local communities,. That is exactly what happened at Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer. Even though there have been great strides in the medical treatment of breast cancer, it is important for everyone to not only increase awareness but to support those in the fight against cancer and those searching for new treatments. Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer and Woman in Pink are both organizations making great strides against breast cancer, and SERO is honored to support their cause.
