Chamber Link April 2016 4 Feature Story opment. To help support development of the Institute, the Whitfield Healthcare Foundation is launching a campaign to raise funds for the project. "The Whitfield Healthcare Foundation is honored to support this project on behalf of our commu- nity," says Whitfield Healthcare Foundation Executive Director Jane Snipes. "Cancer has touched all of us, whether as a caregiver, family member, friend or survivor. We have nearly 11,000 patients living with cancer in Whitfield and Murray counties alone, and this past year, nearly 1,300 new cancer cases were identified at Hamilton." The Whitfield Healthcare Foundation has set an ambitious financial goal to raise $8 million in new gifts to support Hamilton. The goal of this campaign is to provide the means to strengthen and elevate services for patients and families across the entire region. "Our community holds the key to making this vision a reality," says Foundation Chairman Scott Sellers. "We hope that individuals, businesses and foundations will join our efforts to advance cancer services. The Foundation is committed to supporting projects that better our community, and as we ask for the community's financial support, we dedicate ourselves to being excellent stewards of our community's gifts. Together with other Foundation Trustees, I am deeply commit- ted to this campaign and the role it will play in realizing our vision for excellence in healthcare."
