NORWICH – The Chenango Health Network (CHN) received a $4,650 donation to help local residents with cancer from Bill Rapp Subaru of Norwich on Monday.
“It's something that touches almost everyone, even my own family. I'm glad Mr. Rapp and the team could support this,” said Norwich Subaru General Manager Jack Hampton.
“Every single penny will go right back to helping cancer patients,” said CHN Executive Director Kimberly Lorraine.
The business, Bill Rapp Subaru of Norwich, is located at 4814 State Highway 23 in Norwich.
The donation will go primarily to the Baker's Benefits program, funded solely by community donations and helping anyone living in Chenango County diagnosed with any type of cancer.
The other supported fund is by the St. Agatha Foundation for treating breast cancer.
“Aside from gas cards, we have helped with medical bills, prescriptions, lymphedema products and lymphedema massage therapy, dental bills for damage done by chemotherapy, and other bills related to the cancer diagnosis not covered by insurance,” said CHN Community Health Advocate Sandy Myers. “Assistance is based on funding availability, so this donation from Bill Rapp Subaru will go a long way in helping our clients.”
A CHN cancer support group meets the last Monday of the month, which helps members with coping skills and camaraderie. Visit www.chenangohealth.org or email email@example.com for additional information.
