April 5- Meadows Healthcare Foundation has received a seven figure pledge (specific amount not disclosed) from a unnamed donor. Due to this sizable donation, the donor has been given naming rights to the cancer center.
The foundation will introduce the donor to the community at the Radiation Center's ribbon cutting ceremony on April 25th. The donor will also reveal the name chosen for cancer center at that time.
"I know the community will be very happy when they see who this signature donor is and how much love is behind this very generous gift. Almost every person has been affected by cancer in some way or another and this donor is no exception." says Foundation Director, Melissa Hightower.
This donation is the largest single gift that has been given to the foundation since its inception in 2009.
"I want to make a difference in this community. I believe in giving back and helping people. Cancer hits close to home for me and this cancer center will be one of the most advanced centers in the state of Georgia and I am honored to be involved with this project." says the anonymous donor.
An artist's rendering depicting the new name will be made public by the donor at the ribbon cutting ceremony. "We are thrilled be able to put a name on the cancer center that will reflect the reason for this donation." adds Hightower.
The community is invited to the ribbon cutting ceremony. Tours of the Radiation Center are 4:00-5:00 p.m. and the ceremony will begin at 5:00 p.m.
