Sam Quandahl, owner of Floor Coverings of Winona, presented a $600 check to Sandy Gruszynski, RN, Cancer Care Coordinator for the Winona Health Cancer Care Clinic.
The locally-owned Winona business conducts a monthly giving program and in October, the Winona Health Foundation Breast Cancer Fund was chosen as the recipient.
“We like to help local people,” said Quandahl. “It seems like you hear about people with cancer every day, and we are glad to help people right here in our community.”
Through charitable gifts to the Winona Health Foundation, local people who have cancer received over $9,500 for personal necessities in 2017.
“Through my work at the Cancer Clinic, I see a lot of patients who need resources not covered by insurance,” said Gruszynski. “Through generous gifts like this one, we can help patients defray transportation costs, purchase personal necessities, and meet any number of needs. You can’t believe how grateful they are to receive these special gifts.”
The Winona Health Foundation has several cancer funds including funds for general cancer care, breast cancer and men’s cancers. For more information, contact the Winona Health Foundation at 507.457.4394.
