Friday, February 2, 2018 | Cancer Care
The Auxiliary of Milford Memorial Hospital recently made a generous donation to support important services provided by the Bayhealth Cancer Institute.

“We had met and surpassed our $750,000 goal for the new Bayhealth Sussex Campus, so my predecessor Dawn Kenton reached out to department heads to find out if there was another initiative we could support with our fundraising efforts and events,” explained Auxiliary President Tita Lewis. “One thing that was stated as being very much needed was funds to support the Cancer Center.”

“We are grateful for the Auxiliary of Milford Memorial Hospital in our mission to serve cancer patients,” said Medical Director of Radiation Oncology John Lahaniatis, MD.

Lewis also acknowledged the donation wouldn’t have been possible without the support of those living in Milford and surrounding communities. “We [the Auxiliary] host and organize the events, but the money we raise for projects like this is really a joint effort between us and members of our community,” she said.

“The generous donation from the Auxiliary of Milford Memorial Hospital allows us to continue to provide high-quality cancer services to those living in our local communities,” said John D. Shevock, FACHE, FACMPE, senior director of operations, oncology service line and executive director, Bayhealth Cancer Institute.

Upcoming events being hosted by the Auxiliary of Milford Memorial Hospital include an Arts and Antiques event in March.
