AseraCare Hospice recently made a $1,000 contribution to the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute in support of C.A.S.U.A.L. Day. C.A.S.U.A.L. Day is a dress down day hosted by the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute in March to raise awareness about colorectal cancer. Participants dress C.A.S.U.A.L. by wearing an event shirt or pin and spreading the word about the importance of screening. The Northeast Regional Cancer Institute is a non-profit, community-based agency whose mission is to ease the burden of cancer in northeastern Pennsylvania. Focusing on cancer research, education and survivorship, the Cancer Institute invests all of its resources in this region. Shown, from left, are: Michael Moran, C.A.S.U.A.L. Day co-chair and founder; Robert Durkin, president of the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute; Timmie Ott, RN, BSN, AseraCare and Karen Saunders, C.A.S.U.A.L. Day co-chair.
