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...

Patient Care Bag - Community of CaringThank you to Middlebury Girl Scout Troop 64504 for the beautiful comfort bags for our patients! Not only did the girls assemble the bags and fill them with small items designed to help our patients through their cancer experience; they also decorated them with colorful designs and messages of hope and dropped them off to us to distribute.


Patient Care Bag - Community of CaringWe are also grateful to Middlebury Girl Scout Troop 64171 for designing and assembling thoughtful comfort bags filled with goodies for our patients! Attached to each bag was a “Feel Better Soon” label with a photo of the Senior Girl Scouts responsible for the gift, which is just the kind of positive, personal note that means so much to everyone in the Leever family.

Thank you to the staff at Naugatuck Stop & Shop. Twenty comfort bags for patients and a lovely floral arrangement for the enjoyment of everyone in the building were donated from all who participated in a Pink Out Day fundraiser.

  • Generous monetary donations for patient needs by Waterbury Emblem Club #552, National Jr. Honor Society at ACES at Chase, and Autumn Lake at Bucks Hill, Resident Council Group.
  • Beautiful, unique handmade items including hats, scarves, gloves, prayer shawls, and blankets from Marilyn Dillon, The Prayer Shawl Ladies at First Congregational Church of Watertown, Joyce Balanda, Carole Mueller, Maria Bernardi, and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Waterbury.
