St. Joe’s Ann Arbor Patient Makes $21,400 Donation to Support Cancer Center

Carol Blum, a patient of oncologist Kathleen Beekman, MD, gave a new meaning to can-do spirit when she presented her doctor and Daniel Lawson, Executive Director of Oncology, with a donation of $21,400 to support St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor’s Robert H. and Judy Dow Alexander Cancer Center. Carol is now cancer free, and the donation celebrated her last visit as well as the successful results of her annual cans/bottles/pocket-change drive. She started the initiative a few years back by reaching out to friends via social media as well as local organizations and picking up cans and bottles throughout the year. This year, Carol chose St. Joe’s as a beneficiary of her generous effort and gift to help others who are facing cancer this holiday season. St. Joe’s extends our gratitude to Carol and those who supported her efforts.
