IC Awareness Raised in Cartersville, GA!
On November 2, 2019, the Interstitial Cystitis Association (ICA) held a Walk for an IC Cure in Cartersville, GA, hosted by Dr. Jeffrey Proctor, raising awareness and funds to support the interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) community. Together, over 75 passionate patients, husbands, wives, partners, children, neighbors, co-workers, sponsors, and healthcare providers were marching for more IC awareness, better treatments, and a goal to conquer IC. Many thanks to Dr. Proctor and his team from Georgia Urology for your generosity, hard work, and support for this Walk!!
The Walk started with remarks from the host, Dr. Jeffrey Proctor; ICA Board Chair, Mike Greenwell; ICA Board Past Chair, Irma Rodriguez; ICA Executive Director, Lee Lowery; and IC patient, Jack Kirksey. Beth Oswald, PT, DPT led the group with stretches followed by a 1 mile walk through Dellinger Park.
Many thanks to our Cartersville, GA Walk for an IC Cure host, speakers, award winners, and sponsors!
