Members of the group visited Halifax Regional Medical Center for a check presentation and meeting with hospital administration.
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 helps qualifying patients with meals and other travel expenses following their appointments.
The Cancer Care Fund was started in 2015 and has touched more than 150 cancer patients since its launch.
The Ladies of the Lake organization raises money by hosting fundraising events such as home tours, bunko and other events around Lake Gaston to make this donation possible.
Participating providers and clinics collaborating with the Cancer Care Fund project on behalf of the Halifax Regional Foundation include Halifax Regional Mammography, Dr. Michael Sorensen at Roanoke Valley Cancer Center, and 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.
