Kickin' Cancer's Bass - Junior Board
Happy 2020! We are members of the Junior Board for Fish for a Cure. Fish for a Cure raises funds to support the Cancer Survivorship Programming at the DeCesaris Cancer Institute at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis. This programming is a vital part of a patient’s care, beyond the medical treatment they receive at AAMC. When a patient is diagnosed, they are assigned to a Nurse Navigator who guides them through their treatment process. The Nurse Navigator becomes a member of the patient’s cancer support team, being the link between the patient, caregivers and their doctors. They often become a member of the patient’s extended family. Other programming includes Financial Counseling, Cancer Rehabilitation, Nutrition Counseling, Wellness Center Services, and more.
Let us tell you about the Junior Board, and our boat, Kickin’ Cancer’s Bass. We are a group of high school students that support the Board of Fish for a Cure in many ways. We volunteer our time at events hosted by Fish for a Cure, help with mailings, host fundraiser nights at restaurants, sell Kickin’ Cancer’s Bass items like shirts, cups, and more! Last year, we raised $10,000!!! (Fish for a Cure raised over $615,000!).
This year is a bit different, of course, due to COVID-19. We are unable to do much of our normal fundraising (we really miss selling our shirts!), and being able to give our time to volunteer for the F4AC events, as they are mostly virtual. That being said, the need is still there for the patients!
We are asking for your support in way of a donation to Kickin’ Cancer’s Bass. No donation is too small! In fact, a large majority of our donations are $10-25! We are currently in the top 20 (of 57 boats) in the Paul C. Dettor Captain’s Challenge (check out where we are today!!). That is quite a feat given our restricted ability to do our “normal” fundraising events. (You click here: Kickin’ Cancer’s Bass, to take you directly to our donation page. Other links are provided for more information, if you’d like to check it out.)
Thank you in advance for your support!
