Supporting the Fight Against Pediatric Cancer
Amazed. Grateful. Inspired.
That’s how we feel because of your generous contribution to this year’s Hunt for a Cure initiative! February 24 marked the eighth annual Hunt for a Cure basketball games.
Over $4,700 has been raised through the Hunt for a Cure 8 initiative. Half of the proceeds will go to support the Pediatric Oncology Resource Team (PORT)–Greenville Fund. PORT provides local families with support and assistance in the way of prepaid gas and phone cards, cafeteria meal passes and therapeutic family-friendly activities an annual picnic and holiday parties.
The remaining portion goes to support the creation of cancer care packages for patients receiving treatment at Spectrum Health Cancer Center at United Hospital. During treatment, cancer patients need comfort and support to help them through their treatment and encourage them to keep fighting.
