BENEFITING: SPACE COAST CANCER FOUNDATION INC
We are having two fundraisers: One is a Bingo and the other is at Milliken's Reef Restaurant in Port Canaveral. We are having raffles and giving Gift Certificates from local Hotels, Restaurants, Salons, Tours and other interesting items. We are raising funds for our 6th Annual "Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Walk" at Port Canaveral. The walk is Saturday, October 5, 2013 at 9 a.m. Registration starts at 7 a.m. and we have a ceremony prior to the walk. The proceeds will go to the "Space Coast Cancer Foundation" whose mission is to assist cancer patients and their caregivers in our community with financial and emotional demands that are associated with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. The foundation provides direct financial assistance to help pay for pain medication, anti-nausea medication and utilities. In addition, the board of directors supports local oncology education and research. The foundation has available ten $200 educational scholarships for oncology nurses at each of the following hospitals: Parrish Medical Center, Cape Canaveral Hospital, Viera Hospital, Wuesthoff Medical Center-Rockledge, Wuesthoff Medical Center-Melbourne, Holmes Regional Medical Center and Palm Bay Hospital.
