LibLines Donates $20,000 to Help Breast Cancer Patients
(June 13, 2007) - LibLines, an organization dedicated to
promoting communication about breast cancer, has donated $20,000 to
the Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute (ACI)* at
Memorial Health University Medical Center. The "LibLines Breast
Cancer Fund" will be used to breast cancer patients at the ACI
access medications and other support services as they battle
cancer. The fund will benefit patients who do not have other means
to pay for the drugs or services. It will provide medications
(prescription and non-prescription), other treatment items
(nutritional supplements, wigs, lymphedema sleeves), transportation
assistance, utility and grocery assistance, and other necessities.
"The ACI breast cancer team is sincerely grateful for this
contribution from LibLines and LibLines' president Sarah Copeland.
LibLines has partnered with the ACI before, providing grants that
have funded two research projects. This latest grant reinforces
LibLines' dedication to ensuring the very best care for all breast
cancer patients," said Ray Rudolph, M.D., a surgeon at Memorial
Health University Physicians -- Center for Breast Care. Sarah
Copeland founded LibLines in honor of her aunt, Libby Burns, who
died of breast cancer. The company produces greeting cards designed
specifically for women fighting breast cancer. LibLines is
dedicated to helping women and their families understand the range
of emotions experienced throughout a battle with cancer. To learn
