The Halifax Regional Foundation recently received a donation of $6,000 from The Ladies of the Lake Organization.
The donation will be used to support a Cancer Care Fund, which assists with the transportation needs of cancer patients throughout the community. The fund also assists qualifying patients with meals and other travel expenses following their appointments.
The Cancer Care Fund was started in 2015 and has touched the lives of more than 175 cancer patients since its launch. The Ladies of the Lake organization raises money year round to support this fund by hosting fundraising events such as home tours, bunko and other events around Lake Gaston.
Participating providers and clinics collaborating with the Cancer Care Fund project include: Halifax Regional Foundation, Halifax Regional Mammography, Dr. Sorensen of Roanoke Valley Cancer Center, Dr. Rajan of Sai Urology, Dr. Ketoff and Dr. Wegener of Roanoke Valley Surgical Associates.
The Halifax Regional Foundation is committed to supporting Halifax Regional Medical Center in its mission to improving health care in the Roanoke Valley.
The Foundation continuously seeks to build relationships with community and business partners interested in participating in programs to further the work of the Foundation’s fundraising and education efforts.
