The Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center wishes to express its appreciation and a sincere thank you to its neighbors and friends by recognizing the spirit and hard work of the members of our community in fulfilling the Mission of the Leever Cancer Center.
HEARTS OF BLUE
For the fourth consecutive year, the Watertown Police Department harnessed the generosity of local businesses, golf fanatics, and gracious donors to pull off a fun day for a great cause. Our deep and sincere thanks to WPD, their volunteers, and their donors for gifting the Leever Cancer Center with $20,000 in proceeds from their annual golf tournament.
CARING STUDENTS LEADING THE WAY
Students across the region continue to generously support the Leever Cancer Center with donations raised during a range of school-based activities. Our sincere thanks to the Pomperaug High School Student Council, who raised money selling pink shirts; the Swift Middle School Student Council, whose “Pink Out” day supports Leever patients; Hop Brook Elementary School students for their generous donation to help care for breast cancer patients and their families; Woodbury Middle School’s fall athletes who raised money to honor “all warriors fighting the fight”; Children’s Community School students who raised money on “Pink Day”; and students from St. John the Evangelist School, who each donated two dollars to complement their uniforms with a “touch of pink” to support breast cancer patients.
And it’s not just current students making a difference: our thanks to Janice Scarino and her fellow Holy Cross High School alumni from the Class of 1959, who delivered fleece blankets for the comfort of our patients.
