Illiana Heating and Air Conditioning

Illiana Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in St. John is raising awareness of breast cancer during the month of October in honor of the company’s customer service representative and two-year cancer survivor Shelley DeYoung (center). Sue and Tom Krygsheld, (left and right respectively) owners of Illiana Heating & Air Conditioning have pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds from their services to a special fund to help other women get the preventive care they need.

ST. JOHN | October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer affects many of our loved ones including two-year breast cancer survivor Shelley DeYoung, who is the customer service representative at Illiana Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in St. John.

Breast cancer is a disease that can be diagnosed early through routine mammography. The Women's Diagnostic Center of Community Hospital offers digital mammography with same day results. With advances such as same-day results and coordination between area physicians, women can generally begin treatment for breast cancer within 10 days of diagnosis - saving lives.

In honor of Shelley DeYoung, Illiana Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. is establishing an account to help other local women - who otherwise couldn't afford them - receive diagnostic mammograms at the Women's Diagnostic Center in Munster.

During October, Illiana Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. will donate $5. for each service call and $50. for each installation to the "Shelley DeYoung Breast Cancer Survivor" fund. You can help by calling for a furnace tune up or service call, or arranging for a new installation of a high efficient comfort system during October. Call 219-365-0006 for an appointment.

If you would like to donate another way, please send contributions payable to "Community Hospital" and mailed to 901 MacArthur Boulevard, Munster, IN 46321, Attention: Michelle Steffen and specify "Shelley DeYoung Breast Cancer Survivor" in the memo line.

Thank you for helping to protect the special women in our lives. For more information about Illiana Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. visit our website at www.illianaheating.net. Learn more about the Women's Diagnostic Center and advances in women's care at www.comhs.org.
