Expansion of Care
According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, cancer is the second leading cause of death in Ashtabula County. Until recently, there were limited choices for cancer services in the Ashtabula area, requiring many who were diagnosed to travel out of county for treatment.
To address these issues and ensure patients receive advanced care in a comfortable, healing environment, UH has embarked on an ambitious campaign to establish UH Seidman Cancer Centers at both UH Geneva and UH Conneaut medical centers. Improvement of facilities with tranquil aesthetics, natural light and inspirational artwork will complete the full spectrum of UH Seidman Cancer Center services.
The total cost to expand cancer services for our rural patients at both facilities is $800,000. At this time, approximately half of the philanthropic support needed has been raised for UH Conneaut Medical Center. Make a gift today to support this expansion of care to our UH Conneaut community and Ashtabula county residents.
Walk for the Cure
Every year we are inspired by the number of sponsors, walkers, and families that join us at for our annual “Walk for the Cure” and we were looking forward to making this year’s event even more successful. Due to the unforeseen and rapidly evolving situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19), it is with deepest regrets the "Walk for the Cure" committee is announcing the cancellation of this year’s event scheduled for September 20, 2020. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our survivors, fighter’s and supporters, however we are confident that it is the right decision based on the information we have today.
Although we won’t be gathering in person, we are offering ways you can support our goal of raising funds and join in on the fun from wherever you are. We are still accepting donations and will recognize any donor with a Pink windmill, which will be displayed on the front lawns of both UH Conneaut and UH Geneva Medical Centers in the month of October to celebrate breast cancer awareness. We believe that with your help, we can lessen the impact of Covid-19 on our mission of providing free mammograms for the uninsured and breast health education to or community. Thank you for your support during this challenging time for our organization and our community as a whole.
