Saval Foodservice raised over $25,000 to support the efforts of The Children’s Cancer Foundation, Inc. (CCF) at its 15th Annual Golf Tournament on June 12th, 2018.
With the generous support of many local sponsors, Saval Foodservice has loyally supported CCF, contributing more than $225,000 over the last 15 years to CCF in its mission to advance treatments and a cure for pediatric cancers.
CCF President Jerry Chadwick and CCF Board member Paul Schwab and enjoyed the day golfing and CCF Board member Darlene Holmes, Savel Foodservice’s Director of Marketing, helped organize the tournament.
CCF and Saval Foods recognized Madelyn Smith, who was diagnosed and started treatment in 2016 initially for Ewing Sarcoma. Mid-treatment, it was determined that Madelyn had an extrarenal rhabdoid tumor and her treatment plan was changed. Pediatric oncology research played, and will continue to play, a vital role in ensuring pediatric oncologists are aware of all cancers and have the ability to find cures for our youngest patients. Madelyn developed severe scoliosis due to the tumor removal in her back and had a 91 degree curve (her left lung was about to collapse). Madelyn had back surgery in October 2017, where she had 2 growth rods inserted in her back. Today, Madelyn is standing straight, loving life and just finished kindergarten.
Madelyn has been cancer free for 16 months!
CCF is grateful to Paul Saval and the entire Saval team for their loyal and generous commitment to the mission of CCF. Saval’s generous support of CCF enables patients like Madelyn to receive the best the region has to offer in advanced treatments.Please share this!
