Two DHS fundraisers brought in approximately $850 for the Taylor Le Norman McCasland Cancer Center as a part of the DRH Cancer Awareness basketball game.

During the girls and boys basketball game against Ardmore on February 8th, the Tip-In Club sent donation buckets into the crowd, bringing in a little under $500. Before the game, the DHS Cheerleaders sold cancer awareness t-shirts and pink socks as a fundraiser and raised $350.

“It is outstanding to see the youth of this community pull together to make these donations,” said Lane Hooton, Chief Operating Officer of the Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma. “Their efforts and financial contributions are greatly appreciated by not only our staff, but even more, those seeking treatment at our centers.”

The Taylor Le Norman McCasland Cancer Center is located on Duncan Regional Hospital’s campus and is part of the Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma. The cancer center features advanced technology to treat cancer with greater accuracy and with minimal damage to surrounding tissue. Every patient receives an individualized treatment plan, coordinated by an entire team of medical and radiation oncologists, certified technicians and therapists. With cancer treatment available in Duncan, patients can receive the care they need close to home.
