Great River Cancer Center has received a donation of $2,431.70 from Hearth
and Home Technologies. Employees of the Mount Pleasant, Iowa, business
raised $1,215.85, and the employer matched the contribution. Fundraisers
included T-shirt and bake sales.
The donation will support the cancer center’s Hair, Hats & More
program. All patients who have lost their hair because of cancer treatment
receive a soft cotton sleep hat to improve comfort and reduce heat loss.
Because some chemotherapy drugs increase sensitivity to cold weather,
Great River Cancer Center also provides new hats, scarves and gloves,
or women may choose a wig instead.
