The Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center

A Community of Caring

At the Leever Cancer Center we are grateful for the continued generous support of our community. Our deep and heartfelt thanks go out to all of our donors and volunteers, including:

ART WITH HEART

Thanks to Leever PET/CT Technician Christina Kidulas, who put the fun in fundraiser with a paint night party to benefit the Leever Cancer Center. Budding artists had tons of fun while raising $850!

HEARTS OF GOLD, AWARDS OF SILVER

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Cadette can earn. They do so through projects designed to “make the community better.” Kelly McSherry, Julia Krijgsman and Maranda Balcarzak worked toward silver by collecting books, stuffed animals, dolls and more for children and pre-teens going through cancer treatment. Thank you, girls!

MUSIC FOR THE SOUL

Nashville-based singer/songwriter David G. Smith performed in our lobby in August, delighting country fans and music lovers.

WITH CLASS

Thank you to the Sacred Heart High School Class of 1959, who donated fleece throws for Leever patients.

WHEN GIVING IS THE GIFT

Inspired by the many generous donations we receive, the staff at the Leever Cancer Center staff came together to deliver a gift of our own this summer to honor a member of our team who lost her life in a domestic violence tragedy. Our staff (including Melissa Seres) collected toiletries, diapers, monetary donations and other items to benefit the clients of Safe Haven, a nonprofit offering support and services to victims of domestic violence.

PAYING IT FORWARD

Chris Damato held a special event called “Christine’s Comeback from Cancer” in May to celebrate her survivorship and to thank everyone who helped her along the way. The money raised was used to purchase gift cards for patients.
