OMC Foundation’s Ozarks Cancer Crusade Raises Funds for Local Cancer Patients
The Ozarks Cancer Crusade was a lovely Gatsby-themed gala which was held
Saturday, Oct. 20, at the West Plains Civic Center. It was a festive evening
of food, patient testimonials and entertainment.
The evening included attendees in 1920s costume dress; a video from Dr.
Charles Morgan, Board Certified Oncologist, Ozarks Medical Center (OMC)
Cancer Treatment Center; heartfelt testimonials from cancer survivors
Scott Cressman and Randy Achman; entertainment by the Renee Wood Trio;
and a delicious dinner catered by Colton’s Steakhouse.
“It is most exciting when individuals approach the OMC Foundation
with an idea that not only benefits OMC, but their family, neighbors,
and the region,” said Carol Silvey, Vice President for Advancement,
OMC Foundation. “The Cancer Crusade Committee represents such a
group. On behalf of all patients who will benefit from this event, I thank
them and you.” Committee members are: Margie Achman, Danielle Cozort,
Kathy Delgado, Richard Delgado, Wanda Frazier, Eric Gibson (Committee
Chair), Susie Kenslow, Jason Rieck, Andrea Russell, Carol Silvey, and
Amy Jo Wright.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Ozarks Cancer Crusade Fund which
is set up as an emergency fund for cancer patients who are treated at OMC.
