Seaford Ladies Nine Hole Golf Association Donates $17,306 to Nanticoke Cancer Care Services

By Nanticoke Health Services | Jul 30, 2013
The Seaford Ladies Nine Hole Golf Association recently held a “Pretty In Pink” cancer fundraiser raising $17,306 to benefit the infusion center at Nanticoke Cancer Care Services.

The Seaford Ladies Nine Hole Golf Association recently held a “Pretty In Pink” cancer fundraiser. The fundraiser included a dinner and fashion show with live, silent and Chinese auctions, and a golf tournament.

Proceeds from “Pretty In Pink” totaled just over $17,300 and were donated to Nanticoke Cancer Care Services to help with the renovation and expansion of Nanticoke’s infusion center.  This project will expand the number of infusion chairs available while continuing to improve upon the patient centered healing environment that already exists in the center.  Focused on patient and family comfort, the expanded treatment area will also include aesthetic updates as well as give attention to improving the ability of staff to work more efficiently with patients.  With advanced technology, improved comfort including heat and massage chairs, and more pleasing aesthetics complimenting the beautiful view of the Nanticoke River, the infusion center will continue to provide life-saving and health improvement treatments for patients.  In addition to the administration of chemotherapy, other treatments provided at the center include long-term antibiotics, blood transfusions, electrolyte replacement therapy, hydration therapy, iron infusion therapy, and Reclast infusion for osteoporosis patients and others at risk for fractures.   

Nanticoke Cancer Care Services is affiliated with the Tunnell Cancer Center and provides comprehensive medical and radiation oncology services in Western Sussex County.   The affiliation also allows for expanded support services for patients and families, and provides access to clinical trials in Seaford.

“Nanticoke is so grateful to the Seaford Ladies Nine Hole Golf Association for their commitment to Nanticoke and cancer patients in Western Sussex County.  These ladies don’t just “play-a-round” they “play-a-round with purpose.”   Nanticoke is extremely fortunate to have such a strong community partner,” says Steve Rose, President and CEO of Nanticoke Health Services.
