Thanks to all who donated funds and services to our Breast Cancer Patient.
Music Showcase awarded breast cancer patient Debbie Morey of Riverview more than 2-thousand dollars on Friday, November 9th. The check presentation took place at Music Showcase at 402 Oakfield Drive. The check totaled $2106.00 raised from fundraisers that Music Showcase held throughout the month of October. October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Music Showcase raised the funds by selling pink ribbons, cookies, cupcakes, and pens. Music Showcase also held a kids fall festival and Halloween Party on October 20, 2012.

Music Showcase sought nominations for its fundraising dollars and selected Ms. Morey as its winner. Ms. Morey’s friend Nikole Whitehead submitted the nomination. Whitehead wrote that Ms. Morey is now undergoing treatment with an experimental drug for stage 4 breast cancer. Before this, Ms. Morey’s 5-year-old daughter was diagnosed with leukemia and is now in remission. Ms. Morey has two other children…one serves in the Navy and the other has Down Syndrome and needs 24-hour care at home. So, Ms. Morey is used to struggles. Whitehead writes that Ms. Morey stays positive and sews quilts and donates them to the children’s cancer center at St. Joseph’s Hospital where her daughter had received treatment.
