Come join staff from the Los Alamos Medical Care Clinic raise some funds for the benefit of the Los Alamos Council on Cancer. We have been asked why we have such a strong interest in the support of breast cancer. Our answer is simple. Way too many lives have been touched with this disease. Within our office, we have a current employee and a former employee who are survivors and many of us have been affected personally with this disease attacking someone we know.
There are a lot of big organizations that promote breast cancer fundraisers. Our staff however, feels our local community needs to benefit from this fundraiser, so we selected the Los Alamos Council on Cancer as our beneficiary. If The Los Alamos Council on Cancer can take this money and offer some precious women some comfort, we have all succeeded!
Please join us for this fundraiser. We are looking for shoppers and bakers, as the more goods we have, the more money is raised for our community. The sale will be held at 8 a.m.-noon Tuesday, Oct. 29 in the Southwest Physicians Medical Office Building lobby on the first floor of the Los Alamos Medical Center, adjacent to LAMC lobby.
We also have a beautiful quilt that will be raffled. ”Rejoice” was crafted and donated by Debbie Claytor, one of our nurses. The quilt is from a pattern by J. Michelle Watts from Roswell N.M. Come by and see the quilt and buy some tickets. Tickets are $5 for one or five tickets for $20. You can see the quilt in the Los Alamos Medical Care Clinic, Suite 150.
If you would like more information about donating baked goods, please contact 662-4351 and ask for Claudette, Juanita, Julie or Sara.
The Cancer Corner Resource Center is one of the projects of the Los Alamos Council on Cancer. The “Corner,” located on the first floor of LAMC, offers free wigs, hats and scarves for people battling the physical effects of treatment, and a variety of literature and resources on cancer. It serves as a meeting place for the “Look Good…Feel Better” program, and the monthly Cancer Support Group meetings. Staffed by volunteers, it is open from 11-1 p.m. every Wednesday.
