Suwannee Valley Rotary

-A A +A

   Patrick Allen, the director of Haven Hospice in Chiefland, was the special guest speaker at the March 29 Suwanee Valley Rotary meeting.
   Allen said the cancer foundation he helped organize, BACK Fighting Cancer Inc., is on a new mission this year: to provide financial assistance to the families for children fighting cancer in the Tri-County Area.
   The foundation has grown out of what was once known as Austin's Warriors, a fundraising organization set up for cancer patients named after Allen's Son, Austin, who himself is a cancer survivor.
   "You know, we said, 'We need to do something because the community was so supportive of us," Allen said.
   Allen said the organization raised about $10,000 last year.
   "It's been an overwhelming success."
   Allen said money raised not used to support families will be moved in to a scholarship fund.
   BACK Fighting Cancer's next event, the Swinging for a Cure Annual Golf Tournament, at the Chiefland Golf and Country Club, is scheduled for June 9.
