For the past 5 years, Preston Superstore in Burton has donated $1 from every oil change in October to the fight against cancer. This year, they once again donated to UH Geauga Medical Center to help improve the new Seidman Cancer Centers facilities, specifically the infusion center.
UH Geauga is focused on giving people in this area the best in oncology and radiation treatments so patients already going through a tough time don’t have to go far.
They also donated a portion of the proceeds to Lake Heath UH Seidman Cancer center in Mentor. They are doing some great things for patients under going cancer treatments. One of their unique programs is a wig and scarf boutique. Patients going through chemotherapy who lose their hair are able to go to the boutique and pick out a wig or scarf to help them get through the tough time of losing their hair.
The ownership group at Preston was amazed with the effort the nurses and staff go to at Lake Heath Seidman to make their patience feel more comfortable and help get them through a tough time. They also provide their patience with resources to help educate them about the treatment so they know what to expect and how to better manage the side effects.
The money Preston donated will go toward those types of resources.
Both of these centers are doing great work in our community to provide wonderful medical care in our own back yards.
