Community Giving Continues to Support the new Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center at UR Medicine / Noyes Health
Cancer Center Building Project nears Completion with opening anticipated early in 2017
As the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center on the campus of Noyes Memorial Hospital in Dansville nears completion, area residents continue to give generously to support the project.
UR Medicine / Noyes Health staff member Ashley Derrenbacher organized the second annual Rib Fest at Jack’s Place in Dansville earlier this month. She and Jack’s Place owner and chef Jason Howard raised $700 for the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center!
For the third year in a row, Wayland Cohocton High School freshman Blake Zastawrny sold cancer awareness bracelets to raise money for the Cancer Center. He toured the almost complete project with his mom Sherill and presented a check for $486.
The Dansville Lady Mustangs soccer team and the Wayland Cohocton Lady Eagles soccer team raised $700 in a goal-scoring challenge and donated the proceeds to the Cancer Center. Not to be outdone, the Mustangs Boys’ soccer team raised $1400 for the Cancer Center as well.
The Dansville School GETT (Girls Empowered Through Technology) produced and sold t-shirts at a two week entrepreneurial summer camp, raising a total of $2,373.09!
“We are so grateful for the on-going support of this project,” says UR Medicine / Noyes Health CEO Amy Pollard. “So many members of our community and those they love are impacted by cancer and the community has responded by helping us make high quality cancer treatment more accessible. We can’t wait to get the new cancer center open!”
Jon Shay, chair of the Foundation for Noyes Health, also expressed his gratitude. “It’s Thanksgiving,” Shay said, “and we are so thankful for the effort put forth each and every day in support of this hospital and the entire organization. This is truly a community hospital system.”
