Cancer Crusaders Triumph for Cancer Patients
Students from two Union County schools banded together to raise funds to support local cancer patients and their families. The Cancer Crusaders, student leadership organizations from Marysville and Fairbanks schools, each participated in fundraising activities, in addition to raising awareness for cancer education and screenings. Together the students presented Memorial Health with a check for $1600 to benefit the Chicken Soup Group at Memorial Hospital, a support group for cancer patients and their families or caregivers.
Participating in the check presentation were Chip Hubbs, Memorial Health President/CEO; Shannon Conroy, Fairbanks student; Amy Higinbotham, Director of Specialty Care; Shaune O’Connors, Marysville student; and Laura Falk, Fairbanks Student Advisor. “We are extremely proud of these students and their dedication to our cancer patients,” commented Amy Higinbotham. “This is the second year in a row they have dedicated their efforts to supporting the fight against cancer. This donation will help Memorial’s Chicken Soup Group with educational materials and activities. We truly appreciate their efforts.”
