University of Mississippi Medical Center Cancer T-Shirt Fundraiser
The oncology pharmacy department at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) wanted to put together a t-shirt fundraiser to help support the health care providers at the inpatient cancer unit. They liked the “Colorful Cancer Angel” art painting that features the inspirational poem of “What Cancer Cannot Do”.
As everyone knows, healthcare funding is tight right now. Here at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, it is no different. Our inpatient oncology unit wanted to do something special for the nurses and other staff who work so hard in order to ensure that our cancer patients get the best care possible.
We realized, in order to recognize them, we would have to raise the money on our own. That’s when we came across DonnaBellas Angels Colorful Angel design. It put into words what we all deal with on a daily basis on the oncology floor. They have been kind enough to let us use the design for a t-shirt fundraiser.
It is an opportunity to not only raise money in order to recognize our oncology nurses and staff, but to also raise awareness about “What Cancer Cannot Do”. So thank you, DonnaBellas Angels, not just for letting us use your design, but also for inspiring cancer patients and health care providers around the United States.
