Survivors group appreciates help
Thank you again, Wabash Valley, for your continued support of the Wabash Valley Breast Cancer Survivors, Inc. annual “Paint the Town Pink” carnation sale. I do not know of a more caring community. We are extremely grateful for your volunteerism, donations, purchases and any way you aided us in our endeavor throughout the year.
First, we want to thank the oncologists and WTHI for sponsoring the ads and WTWO for their advertisements of the sale. Also, we thank the Salvation Army for the use of their facilities for three days, the 18 sites that allowed us to sell at their locations, AAA for the many boxes with dividers and people who donated vases.
We are very thankful for the multitude of people who bought our carnations or made donations and the many volunteers who helped us with the event in any capacity such as delivering, selling, filling orders, fixing arrangements, fluffing flowers, etc.
Others who deserve a special thank you are Sherwin-Williams for the paint donated for the pink ribbon at Sixth and Wabash, MCL for allowing us to have our meetings at 10:30 the second Saturday each month, Rose-Hulman girl’s basketball team and coach Jon Prevo, the Rose-Hulman girl’s volleyball team and coach Brenda Goble for the special treatment and donation we receive from them, the Dodgeball tournament at Rose-Hulman, the Society of Women Engineers at Rose-Hulman, Eli Lilly, IBEW 725 and Delta Theta Tau Sorority.
We pay for mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women in the Valley. This past year, we gave grants to the two Terre Haute Hospitals, Clinton Union Hospital, St. Vincent’s Brazil Hospital, Sullivan Community Hospital and Paris Hospital for the mammograms. If you need a mammogram and are uninsured, call Regional Women’s Center at 812-237-9464 or Clara Fairbanks at 812-238-7766 or one of the other hospitals listed.
We have free new wigs at Hope, Hux, Providence and Regional Cancer Centers for women on chemotherapy. We make pink, soft, heart-shaped pillows for women to place under the arm after after a mastectomy, soft seatbelt strap covers for the affected side, bags for drainage tubes that women must wear home from the hospital and pink, satin pillowcases for when hair is lost due to chemotherapy. These are placed in a pink bag with some helpful literature and are handed out by the local surgeons and oncologists.
We truly appreciate everything that is done for our organization. Please accept our heartfelt thanks for anything you did to help us. We are all volunteers and have only one fundraiser each year, but donations are always welcome.
