Wreath sales un­der­way for Cancer Nav­i­ga­tors fundraiser

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - From press re­lease Orig­i­nal wreaths have been created by mem­bers of our com­mu­nity and are now on dis­play at the Harbin Clinic Cancer Cen­ter in Rome.

ROME — Area artists, florists, gar­den clubs, busi­nesses, in­te­rior de­sign­ers and cre­ative in­di­vid­u­als have joined Cancer Nav­i­ga­tors, Inc. and the Harbin Clinic Tony E. War­ren, MD Cancer Cen­ter to cre­ate and sell orig­i­nal hol­i­day wreaths to ben­e­fit Cancer Nav­i­ga­tors. The Rome-based char­ity pro­vides oneon-one ser­vices to cancer pa­tients.

Orig­i­nal wreaths have been created by gen­er­ous mem­bers of our com­mu­nity and are now on dis­play at the Harbin Clinic Cancer Cen­ter dur­ing reg­u­lar busi­ness hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mon­day through Fri­day) and the Wright Art Gallery at Floyd Med­i­cal Cen­ter (near gift shop), ac­cord­ing to Scharla Bat­tle, Com­mu­nity Out­reach Man­ager of Cancer Nav­i­ga­tors. Every­one is in­vited to view the wreaths and par­tic­i­pate in the silent auc­tion. The silent auc­tion ends at 1 p.m. on Thurs­day, Nov. 30, with the high­est bid­der win­ning the wreath. You can also place bids on se­lect wreaths on­line at www.can­cer­nav­i­ga­torsga.org.

“This is the sev­enth year this fes­tive event has taken place and it gets big­ger and bet­ter each year,” Bat­tle said. “This hol­i­day dis­play brings so much joy to our pa­tients and their fam­i­lies as it kicks off the hol­i­day sea­son. We have over 60 unique Christ­mas wreaths this year. Each wreath will be iden­ti­fied by the name of the per­son, club or busi­ness that created it. It’s amaz­ing how the com­mu­nity has em­braced this project. We have a great hol­i­day dis­play again this year for this won­der­ful fundraiser.” Ad­mis­sion to the Cancer Cen­ter to view the wreaths is free.

Cancer Nav­i­ga­tors, a lo­cal not-for­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, works with in­di­vid­ual pa­tients to help them with re­sources dur­ing their cancer jour­ney and to help them with the emo­tional and stress of cancer treat­ment.
