Enloe encourages participation on #GivingTuesday - Donations will benefit Enloe Regional Cancer Center

11.25.2020

CHICO, Calif., Nov. 25, 2020 – Enloe Medical Center is encouraging community members to join in the #GivingTuesday movement on Dec. 1. Held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday is a global day of philanthropy and harnesses the power of individuals to make a difference in their communities.

“The day reminds us the importance of giving back and inspires people to donate to causes they hold dear,” said Jolene Francis, Enloe’s director of Advancement & Communications. “Our focus this year is supporting patient care at the Enloe Regional Cancer Center. As a local, nonprofit hospital, the donations we receive are vital and will have a lasting impact for generations.”

The Enloe Regional Cancer Center has helped thousands, including Sara Calderon’s father. “My dad was diagnosed with cancer about 25 years ago,” she said. “Enloe Regional Cancer Center was able to bring him back from sometimes the point where we thought there was no return. The oncologist, the nurses, the words of encouragement and the support they gave us let us know we could keep going, and he found the strength he needed multiple times.”

For more than 45 years, Enloe has offered a variety of services to treat patients diagnosed with cancer — a condition that affects about 1 in 3 people, according to the American Cancer Society. To participate in #GivingTuesday, folks can make donations to the Enloe Foundation on Dec. 1 or any time by visiting www.enloe.org/donate.
