Each spring for the last 15 years, Roxanne Wharton, RTT (R) (T), a Bayhealth radiation therapist, has come up with creative ways to raise money for Relay for Life, the annual team walking event that supports cancer awareness and research.
This year, Wharton and her daughter hosted a fundraiser at Jake’s Wayback Burgers in Smyrna, in addition to holding their yearly yard sale.
“As a radiation therapist, I get to know patients and families dealing with cancer. We’re all part of the same community, and this is one way I can show my support for what they’re going through,” Wharton said.
You’ll see Wharton and the other members of her team at the Relay for Life of Central Delaware event on June 7, 2013. Bayhealth staff also participated in the Relay for Life of Smyrna/Clayton, held on May 17, and will attend Relay for Life of Milford on June 14.
