Relay for Life!

We hope everyone had a safe and happy Easter!

On June 5-6th, the WVC staff and doctor will be participating in the 2009 Relay for Life of Bartlett/Hanover Park/Streamwood. For those who don't know, the Relay for Life is sponsored by the American Cancer Society. It's an overnight fundraiser where participants raise money for cancer awareness.

Each of the staff members, and the doctor herself, have all been affected by cancer in some way, mostly through people we know and love who have fought the beast. Some have won the fight, but many have not. We aren't going there to just promote our business, but in honor or memory of those near and dear to us who have fought the fight. Sadly, there have been many.

We have several cans set up in the clinic for donations. Any amount is welcome! We're also planning to do a clinic-wide fundraiser one weekend before the big event. We'll let you know more about that when it happens.
