The Jean & Joan Fund has Supported the Tunnell Cancer Center for a decade
The Jean & Joan Fund has supported Tunnell Cancer Center for more than a decade.
At the Organization's annual golf tournament held in October 2009 at the Kings Creek Country Club, more than $32,000 was raised for Beebe Medical Center's Tunnell Cancer Center. The group also honored medical oncologist Srihari Peri, MD, Medical Director of the Tunnell Cancer Center, with a gift to the Cancer Center of $10,000 worth of platelet blood testing materials. In total this group has raised more than $250,000 for the Tunnell Cancer Center over the last decade.
The fund has supported the establishment of the Jean & Joan Reflection Center at the Tunnell Cancer Center, has purchased three vehicles used for transporting patients to and from their treatments, has funded the building of the enclosure for the Tunnell Cancer Center Healing Garden, and has donated to the Tunnell Cancer Center Patient Special Needs Fund.
