Seaford Nine Hole Golf Association raises $17,306 for infusion center

The Seaford Ladies Nine Hole Golf Association recently held a "Pretty In Pink" cancer fundraiser which included a dinner and fashion show with live, silent and Chinese auctions, and a golf tournament.

Proceeds totaled just over $17,300 and were donated to Nanticoke Cancer Care Services to help with the renovation and expansion of Nanticoke's infusion center. This project will expand the number of infusion chairs available while continuing to improve upon the patient centered healing environment that already exists in the center. The expanded treatment area will also include aesthetic updates as well as give attention to improving the ability of staff to work more efficiently with patients.

In addition to the administration of chemotherapy, other treatments provided at the center include long-term antibiotics, blood transfusions, electrolyte replacement therapy, hydration therapy, iron infusion therapy, and Reclast infusion for osteoporosis patients and others at risk for fractures.

Nanticoke Cancer Care Services is affiliated with the Tunnell Cancer Center and provides comprehensive medical and radiation oncology services in Western Sussex County. The affiliation also allows for expanded support services for patients and families, and provides access to clinical trials in Seaford.
