The Fairfield Medical Center Foundation recently accepted two grants for the Cancer Care Fund from the Fraternal Order of Eagles (FOE). Grants totaling $20,000 from the State of Ohio Eagles Charity Fund and Aerie #2120, FOE, in Lancaster, were presented to Foundation Executive Director Ricki Chenault and Oncology Nurse Navigator Joyce Cox during the Eagles annual state convention held in Columbus, Ohio.
Joyce Cox gratefully accepted the funds in the name of FMC’s patients and expressed gratitude for all they have done over the years. The Eagles have been supporting cancer care at FMC since the 1980’s. The Eagles were recently recognized at an FMC board of directors meeting for their continued support, which now totals over $340,000.
“Every year the Eagles helps support people in this community affected by cancer and we can’t thank them enough,” said Chenault. “The grant will be used to help people who qualify and give them the greatest gift of all, hope.”
FMC offers a full line of cancer services, providing treatment and support to patients in need. Cancer services include chemotherapy, surgery, radiation and more. For additional information call (740) 687-8000.
