Central Vermont Medical Center,The 12th Annual CVMC Fall Foliage Charity Golf Classic will be held Tuesday, October 1, 2013 at the Country Club of Vermont in Waterbury Center. All proceeds from this year’s tournament will go to benefit the CVMC Cancer Patient Fund, which assists patients undergoing radiation therapy or chemotherapy at CVMC.A diagnosis of cancer ripples across all aspects of a person’s life, affecting more than just their physical wellbeing. For many cancer patients the financial burden of cancer treatment makes it difficult to meet basic needs, like buying food or paying rent or utility bills. These financial challenges, in turn, can impact their ability to follow through on getting the critical medical care that they need. At the National Life Cancer Treatment Center and Central Vermont Oncology, our staff has created a special Patient Fund to assist patients. ‘Today, quality cancer care goes beyond medical treatments,’ said CVMC’s Patient Navigator Theresa Lever. ‘We are there for our patients before, during and after their treatments, helping them overcome obstacles and using a variety of our resources in traditional and creative ways to help reduce their stress and make this difficult time in their lives a little easier.’ Participants in CVMC’s Charity Golf event not only support a great cause but enjoy a wonderful day of golf on one of Vermont’s top golf courses. Our 18-hole, 4-member team scramble tournament is a fast, fun format that allows participants to enjoy the Country Club of Vermont’s pristine fairways and greens during peak fall foliage. A wide variety of both individual and corporate sponsorship opportunities are still available (non-golfers can consider a cash or in-kind donation). Eagle Sponsors this year are Bond Auto Parts, CBMVT Cleaning Services, Connor Contracting, Control Technologies, E.F.
