Cancer survivor turns gratitude into action through fundraiser.
LANGHORNE, Pa – May 18, 2010 – Enrique Lopez is grateful to be alive. The cancer survivor turned his gratitude into action recently by organizing the “Kickstart Tavern Cancer Run” fundraiser to raise awareness about early cancer screening.
Lopez combined his passion for motorcycle riding with his desire to thank St. Mary Medical Center for the care and treatment he received. On May 8, Lopez was among 75 motorcyclists who rolled into St. Mary Medical Center to present a $5,000 check to his radiation oncologist Dr. Todd Flannery.
“The money you (Lopez and his fellow motorcyclists) have raised will help St. Mary continue the excellent standard of care we provide at the St. Mary Regional Cancer Center,” Flannery said during the presentation.
