The Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center

A Community of Caring

It takes a village, and at the Leever Cancer Center we are both amazed and grateful for the caring, dedication, and generosity of the community that surrounds us. We extend our deep and heartfelt thanks to:

Girl Scout Troop 64009, representing Middlebury and Southbury, who delivered 30 care packages for our patients, filled with items such as cards, puzzle books, snacks, and hand lotion.

Malcolina Couvertier and her family, who put together amazing care packages for Leever patients.

Volleyball players from Middlebury’s Westover School who, along with coach Dak Manella, made cards for Leever patients. Go Wildcats!

The Driggs School family, who raised $745 for the Leever Cancer Center during their “Pink Out” day. The donation honored staff member and cancer survivor Lucy Sheetz.

The Watertown Fire Department, for selling T-shirts and donating the proceeds to Leever.

The staff of Northwest CT Public Safety for their generous cash donation.

Every generation of the Schenker family for their generous donation of gift bags.

Students from Swift Middle School in Watertown, who raised nearly $600 by selling breast cancer awareness bracelets.

Longtime Team Leever/Connecticut Challenge supporter Russ Naylor, for his generous donation in honor of his mother, Pat Naylor, and several friends, neighbors, and family members — survivors and warriors alike.

Judy Doran and the customers and staff at the Charcoal Chef in Woodbury, who raffled off pink baskets to raise money and awareness.

Quench Café in Waterbury for hosting a breast cancer awareness benefit. Pink drinks, pink food, live music, and raffles all made for a fun event.

The Watertown High School Girls Swimming and Diving Team, who sold pink ducks and T-shirts to benefit Leever during a cancer awareness event.

The students from Watertown’s St. John the Evangelist School for making and delivering cheerful cards for our patients.

Krista Palomba, who previously donated 95 gift bags to patients at HLRCC and returned with more gifts! Her bags include blankets, lotions, soaps, and other comfort items.
