As a result of Canfield High School seniors and varsity soccer players Jad Saleh’s and Cecilia Shaer’s National Honor Society service project, Soccer Pink Outs on Oct. 8, the students presented The Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center with a check for $1,645 on Dec. 7.
The students raised breast cancer awareness and funds during the Pink Outs during the girls junior varsity and varsity soccer games and the boys junior varsity and varsity soccer games on Oct. 8.
The students presented the check to Rashid Abdu, M.D., along with Gina Marinelli of Mercy Health Foundation of Mahoning Valley and Juli Dulay, manager of The Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center at St. Elizabeth’s.
“These students deserve recognition for doing what they do to help us. The money they raised will be used to pay for mammograms for uninsured women. So the money these students raised and donated to us goes right back into the community. I get the pleasure of being able to say, ‘Yes, we can help you,’ because of what these kids do for us. I love that these kids have such a commitment to their community at a young age,” Dulay said.
Saleh and Shaer also presented a check for $1,645 to Yellow Brick Place on Dec. 9.
Yellow Brick Place, co-founded by President Donna Detwiler and Vice President Anna Aey, provides support to cancer survivors, families and caregivers. The Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center delivers accurate prevention, early detection, diagnosis and support services available in an environment of compassionate and coordinated care.
