CATSKILL REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER RECEIVES DONATION FROM LOCAL GIRL SCOUT TROOP – 12/01/2011
Dec. 1, 2011 – Harris, N.Y. – Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC) received a $400 donation for its Oncology Department from Girl Scout Troop 96, Sullivan West. The funds will help breast cancer patients purchase needed items and assist with transportation costs.
Troop 96 raised the funds through their Fall Fundraising Drive selling nuts, candy and magazines. The girls chose the CRMC Oncology Department because the founder of the Girl Scouts of America, Juliette Gordon Low, succumbed to breast cancer in 1927, and 2012 is the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts.
On November 22, a group of seven girls, their troop leader Chrissy O’Sullivan, and some proud parents presented the check to CRMC. The girls then took a tour of the Oncology Unit at the hospital, where the check will be displayed on the wall. Cancer Care at CRMC includes a well-developed oncology program that offers a multidisciplinary team approach combined with quality care. The program continues to be distinguished by the excellent and compassionate patient care it provides. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact the Hematology/Oncology Department at 845-794-3300 ext. 3233.
