Giving permeates the culture at Priority Marketing, so when Barbara’s Friends launched its Clips for Cancer campaign, team members jumped at the opportunity to help raise awareness and support for pediatric cancer care at Golisano Children’s Hospital.
Three team members – Director of Web Manny Gonzalez, Senior Graphic Designer Phil Barrera and Media Buyer Kevin McDade – braved the shave on Sept. 22. The three men, all military veterans, each have been personally affected by cancer and said they wanted to show their support for children and families in Southwest Florida.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and all month, local pediatric cancer survivors have been shaving the heads of community leaders to raise money for Barbara’s Friends — Golisano Children’s Hospital’s cancer fund. Barbara’s Friends supports programs and services not reimbursed by insurance to ensure that no family is denied access to cancer care. During the past 26 years, Barbara’s Friends has helped more than 10,000 children receive life-saving treatments.
Clips for Cancer runs through Sept. 30, so there is still time to support the cause!
