ProMedica Charity Events to Support Cancer Care and Research
posted on: 09/30/2013TOLEDO, Ohio, October, 2013 – In October, ProMedica Bixby Hospital and ProMedica Flower Hospital will each hold community events on their campuses to raise awareness and funding for cancer. Proceeds from both events will go toward patient care services at Hickman cancer centers in Adrian, Mich., and Sylvania, Ohio.
The annual “Bite for the Fight” and “Graze to Raise” fundraisers will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19. Cancer survivors and the public are invited to participate in a one-mile or 5K walk (depending on the location) and sample a variety of food from area restaurants and vendors.
Both Hickman centers are accredited by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer, a designation that is awarded only to cancer centers that offer the best in cancer diagnosis, treatment and services. Patients have access to the latest medical imaging technology, advanced treatments and clinical trials.
