Beebe Healthcare’s Tunnell Cancer Center received a donation Feb. 18 from The Miracle Angels of Israel United Methodist Church of Lewes in the amount of $7,476 that will benefit the Center’s Patient Special Needs Fund.
Sister Betty J. Streett, treasurer and committee member of The Miracle Angels, became a cancer survivor in April 1998. She was treated at Beebe Healthcare’s Tunnell Cancer Center under the care of Srihari Peri, who then became a friend. During the check presentation event, Streett praised the Tunnell staff for their compassion and care throughout her treatment.
The Miracle Angels of Israel United Methodist Church raised funds for cancer survivors since 1999, starting with their initial involvement with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life Team. They later transitioned to the Sussex County Cancer Survivor Fund organization.
