A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE JUNE BUG CANCER FUND
In 2007, employees of Central Care Cancer Center in Emporia established the June Bug Cancer Foundation, in honor of June Monnard Sauder, known as “June Bug” to her family. Mrs. Sauder was treated at Central Care Cancer Center for breast cancer for 11 months before her death in 2005. Newman Regional Health Foundation is pleased to announce that Mrs. Sauder’s legacy continues through the June Bug Cancer Fund, which is now a fund in the Newman Regional Health Foundation.
The purpose of the June Bug Cancer Fund is to help ease the burden of cancer for people under the care of Central Care Cancer Center in Emporia. The fund assists with some of the smaller cost-of-living incidentals that become more difficult to support as they struggle with their fight against cancer, such as transportation, lodging, food, and in some cases assistance with utility bills and acquisition of medical equipment such as wheelchairs or walkers.
Money raised from donations, fundraising events, and memorials will continue to play a vital role in the success of the June Bug Cancer Fund. For information about donating or planning a fundraising event for the June Bug Cancer Fund, contact 620-341-7781 or email@example.com.
