The Auxiliary of Milford Memorial Hospital recently made a donation to support services provided by the Bayhealth Cancer Institute.

“We had met and surpassed our $750,000 goal for the new Bayhealth Sussex Campus, so my predecessor Dawn Kenton reached out to department heads to find out if there was another initiative we could support with our fundraising efforts and events,” said Auxiliary President Tita Lewis. “One thing that was stated as being very much needed was funds to support the Cancer Center.”

Lewis also acknowledged the donation wouldn’t have been possible without the support of those living in Milford and surrounding communities.

“We [the Auxiliary] host and organize the events, but the money we raise for projects like this is really a joint effort between us and members of our community,” said Lewis.

Upcoming events being hosted by the Auxiliary of Milford Memorial Hospital include an Arts and Antiques event in March. To join the Auxiliary, visit Reflections Gift Shop at Bayhealth Milford Memorial, 21 W. Clarke Ave., and ask for a membership envelope or call 270-1842.
