The Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center

A Community of Caring

The Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center wishes to express its appreciation to our neighbors and friends...

We are so very appreciative for a generous bequest received from the Estate of Irene Handle.

A big thank you for the generous donations received from Gianna Lourenco in memory of Marilyn Olmstead and the Watertown Soccer Fundraiser in memory of Crissy Donorfio.

Our HLRCC staff is most thankful to Joe Capella and the Are You Dense Organization for recognizing the Leever Cancer Center at its Music Fest 2022.

Thanks to all those who ran Pink Out events and donated the proceeds to the Leever Center including ACES at Chase, Maloney Interdistrict Magnet School, and Wolcott High School Boys and Girls Soccer Teams.

Our sincere gratitude for head coverings received from Lou Valenti (on behalf of Beverly Valenti), Rose L. Moss, Maiorano Funeral Home, Rita M. Greene, Susan Phillips, and Alex Vinh (in memory of Lois A. M. Brodeur).

We are most grateful for the following donations: Four cases of Ensure from Ada Lugo, personal care items and beautiful ornaments (pictured at right) from St. John of the Cross Women’s Group and David Ferguson, and small patient gifts from Hope on Main Street, “Team Hope.”

Great thanks, too, to all who donated items including knit hats, shawls, afghans, blankets, and other items: Wolcott Senior Center Knitting Club, Peg Vaghi, Staff of Middlebury Convalescent Home, North Purchase Happy Hookers, The Prayer Shawl Ladies at the First Congregational Church of Watertown, Helen Lang and the Naugatuck Senior Center, Janice M. Kulpa, Jo-Anne Pallacovitch, Betty Reynolds, and Maryann Jackson.
