Anderson Regional Cancer Center partnered with Lazy Acres Plantation to raise funds for the Cancer Patient Benevolence Fund during October.
Lazy Acres Plantation is a 120 acre farm located in Chunky, Mississippi. The farm offers family-centered entertainment, hayrides, a petting zoo and many other activities. The main attraction is the Pumpkin Patch, and this year, Lazy Acres went “Pink at the Patch” in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One dollar from each regular priced admission ticket was donated to the Cancer Patient Benevolence Fund.
The Cancer Patient Benevolence Fund is a fund administered by Anderson Regional Cancer Center to help patients with needs not met by insurance. The money donated to this fund is used to provide medications, prosthesis, wigs, and transportation to patients who could otherwise not afford these things.
In a recent presentation, Lazy Acres Plantation Director, Michael Mays, announced that $5,000 was raised during the month of October.
Wayne Herrington, Administrative Director of Anderson Regional Cancer Center, said “We are so thankful that Lazy Acres wanted to partner with us for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many patient needs will be met because of this donation, and we look forward to continuing this partnership.”
