$120,000 raised by the Cancer Institute during C.A.S.U.A.L. Day

June 20th, 2015 11:28 am

Thousands of participants across several counties purchased 5,000 shirts and approximately 3,500 awareness pins as part of the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute’s second annual C.A.S.U.A.L. (Colon cancer Awareness Saves Unlimited Adult Lives) Day, held March 26. The event is held each year at the end of March to raise awareness about the importance of screening and early detection for colorectal cancer. Proceeds benefit the Cancer Institute’s efforts to provide support screenings for low income, uninsured, or under-insured individuals in NEPA through the Patient Navigation Program. The Cancer Institute raised $120,000 to support local colorectal cancer education and outreach services. Employees from the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute, from left, first row, Karen Saunders, Ann Crisanti, Donna Ahearn, Lisa Wilkins, Michelle Jones, Amanda Marchegiani and Kristie Gallagher.
