Nursing Students Donate $1,000 to Genesis Cancer Care Center
Thursday, November 30, 2023
The Muskingum University Nursing Student Organization recently donated $1,000 to the Genesis Cancer Care Center at Genesis HealthCare System. The nursing students raised the funds through T-shirt sales, and the money will assist breast cancer patients with supplies such as breast prostheses and mastectomy bras.
“We are immensely grateful to the Muskingum University nursing students for their efforts to raise funds for our breast cancer patients,” said Pebbles Thornton, Director, Genesis Cancer, Palliative Care and Hospice Services. “We are lucky to have these future healthcare providers and leaders demonstrating their dedication to helping those in our community who are fighting this disease.”
