Regional Cancer Center 5th annual Bucks for Ducks Fundraiser

October 20, 2015
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

It's the duckiest way to honor your breast cancer hero. Throughout the month of October, the Bucks for Ducks program helps transform the reflection pond of the Regional Cancer Center into a bright, cheerful symbol of hope.

Each donor to Bucks for Ducks is given their very own pink rubber ducky to adorn with a personal message or to name in honor of a loved one. The rubber duckies are $3 each or two for $5. Donations help to save lives by contributing to Lee Memorial Health System Breast Health Centers' mammography fund to assist less fortunate patients with breast cancer detection.

The colorful duckies are placed in the Regional Cancer Center's reflection pond where the flock gathers throughout October in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Breast Health Center staff is more than happy to place a duck in the reflection pond for donors who are unable to come to the following donation sites:

Regional Cancer Center, 8931 Colonial Center Drive, Suite 200, Fort Myers

Sanctuary Breast Center, 8960 Colonial Center Drive, Fort Myers

HealthPark Commons Breast Center, 16281 Bass Road, Suite 204, Fort Myers

Surfside Outpatient Center, 2441 Surfside Blvd., Cape Coral

A memorial and blessing of the ducks will take place at the pond Oct. 29, at noon. Anyone is welcome to attend.

For more information, or to make a donation, contact Diana Hammock at 239-343-9452.
