For the first time since the opening, golfers will take to the course in support of those battling cancer.
“This year is an especially exciting year,” said Lisa Jackson, JRMC Foundation director. “Now that the JRMC Cancer Center is open, we feel energized. We appreciate the community’s support as we continue to raise funds to sustain this service.”
The JRMC Cancer Center opened in June 2019. The center offers chemotherapy and other infusions in its six sun-lit and spacious infusion bays. The space also includes exam rooms, a consultation area and space for nurses and staff. The community raised $1.7 million of the $1.9 million needed to build the space.
Now that it is open, the JRMC Cancer Center will provide chemotherapy infusions for more than 100 residents of Jamestown and the surrounding communities. Currently, those people travel more than 100 miles for that care. This will eliminate more than 160,000 miles of travel per year.
The title Golf “FORE” Good sponsor is the JRMC Auxiliary.
The JRMC Auxiliary title sponsored the event for the second time this year. The 40 or so members support JRMC through organizing fundraisers and supporting the JRMC Gift Shoppe.
“Everyone is so in favor of getting the JRMC Cancer Center here so people don’t have to drive,” said Eunice Sahr, JRMC Auxiliary president.
The Auxiliary meets monthly and is always seeking new members.
With the help of the Auxiliary and other community sponsors, last year’s Golf “FORE” Good netted about $30,000.
