The Barberton High School volleyball program donated $418 from its “Volley for the Cure” fundraiser to the Summa Health Cancer Institute. The oncology staff at the Summa Health System — Barberton Campus recently hosted the team to accept the donation.
“We wanted to support cancer patients in our community,” said Mia Silva, a Barberton junior captain. “We all know someone who has been affected by cancer, and we appreciate what Summa Health does for Barberton.”
The funds were raised through donations from attendees at the “Volley for the Cure” game between Norton and Barberton on October 2.
Such donations help Summa Health cancer patients access financial advocacy, psychological counseling and social services; massage, yoga and physical therapies; wigs, wig fittings and wig care supplies; nutrition counseling and more.
