West Plains Daily Quill presents Donation for the Ozarks Healthcare Cancer Treatment Center
The West Plains Daily Quill recently presented a donation of $460 to the Ozarks Healthcare Foundation for the Ozarks Healthcare Cancer Treatment Center. The proceeds were donated directly to a fund that helps patients at Ozarks Healthcare’s Cancer Treatment Center who may need assistance with costs related to housing, travel, groceries, utility bills, and more.
The West Plains Daily Quill raised funds for its donation from “footprints” that were displayed in a July edition of the newspaper, which are usually purchased by businesses or individuals to recognize and honor past and present cancer patients.
“We are deeply touched by the West Plains Daily Quill and their thoughtfulness behind their ‘Footprints of Cancer’ display,” Josh Reeves, Vice President of Development at Ozarks Healthcare, said. “Donations to our Cancer Treatment Center help those who are facing one of the most difficult battles life can present. We are grateful for support and generosity shown to our patients and their families through donations such as this one.”
The Ozarks Healthcare Foundation, established in 1998 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) with a local board of directors, serves as a liaison between donors and Ozarks Healthcare to assist the hospital in providing excellent healthcare to the communities it serves.
