Stanton Health Center where our motto is:
“Not NO But HOW”
On December 17th, Karen Daneu, Executive Director of Susan G. Komen Nebraska, came to Stanton Health Center to honor the staff for all of their hard work in their fundraising efforts. Shown above, from left to right, Nicole Hamersma, Cindy Mandl, Melissa Larson, Karen Daneu (Susan G. Komen Nebraska), Andy Willer, Chelsea Kumm, and Chay Indra all were present to give a check to the Susan G. Komen Nebraska Foundation.
From October 13th through October 17th, the staff at Stanton Health Center enjoyed a week of fun and festivities. All for a good cause, of course. The employees all came together and raised approximately $1,800 for the Susan G. Komen Nebraska Foundation. This dedicated group of employees recognizes the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness and believes in the mission of the Susan G. Komen Nebraska Foundation.
Most of the staff members at Stanton Health Center have been touched by breast cancer in some way. They either have had personal experience with the disease of they know a friend or family member who has been affected by breast cancer. In a woman’s lifetime, 1 in 8 will end up having breast cancer. That is a terrifying statistic. With odds like that, it is incredibly important to continue research and awareness to improve the survival rates of those affected by breast cancer.
Stanton Health Center employees hosted many fundraising events over the course of the week in October. They held a silent auction, with lots of amazing baskets that could be purchased to raise funds. Many of the baskets were fun and, as expected, many were pink in color, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The culmination of the week was on Friday when the staff held a public golf tournament at Elkhorn Acres Golf Course. Also on Friday, a taco bar was enjoyed by the staff and a Bake Sale was held at the facility for the public. It was a great week packed full of fun, and all for a good cause.
