 Local businesses in Lake County have teamed-up with the AdventHealth Waterman Foundation to raise funds for cancer care.

Pictured here is one of the supporting businesses SuperWash Express of Mount Dora, donating funds from last year’s efforts. From left to right: Paul Bradley, SuperWash Express Palm Coast president; April Kauffman, AdventHealth Waterman Foundation president and chief philanthropy officer; Jenna Krager, AdventHealth Waterman Foundation manager; and Daniel Verduzco, SuperWash Express of Mount Dora general manager.

 

During the month of October, SuperWash Express and several other area businesses will donate a portion of sales, while some will sell tags for AdventHealth Waterman’s signature lawn flamingos. These funds will be used to provide cancer education and screenings, including mammograms for those in need.

The participating businesses:

  • Bella Toscana Med Spa, 1699 Mayo Dr., Tavares
  • Danny Len Buick GMC, 17605 US-441, Mount Dora
  • SuperWash Express, 18805 US-441, Mount Dora
  • Lake/Bay Pharmacy, 710 N. Bay St., Eustis
  • Gator Harley-Davidson, 1745 US-441, Leesburg
  • AdventHealth Waterman, Gift Shop, 1000 Waterman Way, Tavares

All supporting businesses will post signage reading “Support Cancer Care Here,” with the AdventHealth Waterman logo.

“We are proud to do our part to support patients impacted by cancer locally,” Rodney Len, owner and president of Danny Len Buick GMC, said in a press release. “It feels good to know the money we raise during October will stay right here in Lake County, making a difference for our friends, family and neighbors. So many are affected by this disease.”

In 2018, AdventHealth Waterman cared for more than 700 newly diagnosed cancer cases. Of those in Lake County who were diagnosed with cancer, 13.5% were below poverty level. For these patients, the AdventHealth Waterman Foundation provided over 130 screening mammograms through donated funds.
