CVMC Fall Foliage Charity Golf Classic raises $15,000 for cancer care services
Golfers participating in the 10th Annual CVMC Fall Foliage Charity Golf Classic were treated to a spectacular fall day at the Country Club of Vermont in Waterbury. The tournament raised close to $15,000 for cancer care services at Central Vermont Medical Center.With the opening of the National Life Cancer Treatment Center in the fall of 2009, this addition of radiation therapy to all of our existing diagnostic, surgical and medical oncology services means that cancer patients in central Vermont now have access to comprehensive cancer care’including many critical patient support services’right here in their own community.CVMC’s Patient Navigator, Theresa Lever, spoke to golfers at the reception following the event about the advancements CVMC has made over the past two years in the types of support services provided to cancer patients. ‘Today, quality cancer care goes beyond medical treatments,’ said Lever. ‘We are there for our patients before, during and after their treatments, helping them overcome obstacles and using a variety of our resources in traditional and creative ways to help reduce their stress and make this difficult time in their lives a little easier.’CVMC would like to thank all of our sponsors, on behalf of our patients, who are the true beneficiaries of their generous support. The top level sponsors of this year’s golf tournament were Berlin Health & Rehabilitation by Revera, Bond Auto Parts, Connor Contracting, Inc., Control Technologies, E.F. Wall Associates Inc., NICOM Coatings, People’s United Bank, Rathbone & Company (A Division of Kinney Pike Insurance) and The Vermont Agency of National Life.
