WILMINGTON, NC - New Hanover Regional Medical Center would like to thank She Rocks for a generous donation of $60,000 to the NHRMC Foundation in support of the NHRMC Zimmer Cancer Center.
 With this donation, She Rocks generously funded the purchase of 35 infusion chairs to be used by cancer patients in the newly renovated Infusion Unit at Zimmer Cancer Center.
 “We are grateful for the incredible impact that She Rocks has made in our community and, more specifically, through their support of our patients at Zimmer Cancer Center,” said NHRMC Foundation Vice President of Development and Executive Director Schorr Davis. “This gift is significant because the new infusion chairs are designed to improve comfort for our patients while helping transform an incredibly difficult time into one of support and hope.”
She Rocks Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money for ovarian cancer research and providing local support to those affected by all cancers. The new infusion chairs will help patients relax in comfort in infusion stations that are tailored to suit patients’ preferences for privacy or socialization.
“We are very appreciative of the generosity and support of She Rocks,” said Henry Hawthorne, administrator of oncology at NHRMC Zimmer Cancer Center. “This donation allows us to provide all chemotherapy and infusion patients with more than just comfortable chairs – it gives them control over their environment by giving heat and massage options.”
 She Rocks is a 501c3 started in 2014 to raise awareness and funding for ovarian cancer research and support for those with cancer. For more information, visit http://she-rocks.org
