Perrysburg High School Designates

January 18 Basketball Game as “Slam Dunk Against Cancer.”

 

When Anthony Wayne and Perrysburg take the floor on January 18th, the night will feature more than just top-flight basketball.  Perrysburg High School will use the game as an opportunity to educate the public on some of the unseen ways cancer can impact patients—particularly financial hardships during treatment, including the struggle to pay for life’s necessities, such as housing, utilities and food.

 

“Slam Dunk Against Cancer” will support The Toledo Clinic Foundation, which was founded to assist patients of the Clinic who are having trouble paying their non-medical bills.

 

In fact, for years staff members at The Toledo Clinic’s medical practices have raised money among themselves to help needy families pay their non-medical expenses.

 

Founded in 2018, The Toledo Clinic built on the generosity of its employees by creating The Toledo Clinic Foundation, which formalized the assistance program while also allowing it a chance to grow.

 

“Our high quality of care is built on the commitment and generosity of the people who work for us,” said Mike D’Eramo, Chief Administrative Officer of The Toledo Clinic.  “The Toledo Clinic Foundation reflects the very same values.”

 

“We thank Perrysburg for providing the opportunity to take this message to the community,” said Sue Stombaugh, President of The Toledo Clinic Foundation.  “Our organization is served entirely by volunteers and 100% of all donations go directly to patients battling cancer.”
