Beebe Healthcare’s Tunnell Cancer Center Receives $500 Donation from Big Fish Grill Restaurant/Foundation
Submitted by Administrator on
Beebe Healthcare recently received a $500 donation from the Big Fish Grill Restaurant/Foundation, dedicated to Beebe’s oncology program.
Beebe Healthcare recently announced a proposed expansion of services and facilities that would include a new cancer center for the South Coastal region, in Millville.
Beebe employees received a 10 percent discount when they showed their badge on Thursdays at any of the Southern locations during 2017. The Big Fish Group donated the percentage of those sales back to Beebe and added monies from the Big Fish Charitable Foundation to make it an even $500.00.
“Luckily, I’ve never been a patient at Tunnell Cancer Center, but if I did need cancer care, I believe there is no other facility like this. My dear friend was here for care and treatment, and we were all struck by the compassionate people working here,” shared Jenny Burton, Executive Director of Big Fish Charitable Foundation.
Tunnell Cancer Center’s Executive Director, Barry Hamp adds, “While cancer is on no one’s bucket list, here at Tunnell Cancer Center, we strive to make each patient’s experience as positive as possible through the type of care and treatment we demonstrate.”
“Gifts like this are so appreciated. They truly make this Center what it is. It is so wonderful that others continue to give and support our great cancer center,” said Judy Aliquo, CFRE, President and CEO of the Beebe Medical Foundation.
