April 02, 2014

Agnesian HealthCare is showing its support of the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Ripon scheduled for Friday, May 2 in downtown Ripon.

Ripon Medical Center, as a member of Agnesian HealthCare, is serving as a main event sponsor. In addition, representatives from Agnesian Cancer Care services will be on hand to offer a pig roast starting at 5 p.m. Pork sandwiches (from Eden Meat Market) will be available for only $3 a person (first-come, first-serve basis). All donated money will go to the American Cancer Society.

“Agnesian HealthCare is proud to support the American Cancer Society as we share a common mission,” says Bill Daly, director of Agnesian HealthCare Oncology Services. “We are grateful to provide vital cancer care services at Ripon Medical Center through Dr. Michael Jones and his caring team. We know that it is important that as many healthcare services be available close to home.”

The Relay for Life in Ripon on May 2 runs from 5 p.m. to midnight at downtown Ripon, 200 Watson Street.

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to Celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, Remember loved ones lost and Fight Back against the disease.
