Kent-Island-American-Legion-(2)American Legion Makes Donation to Cancer Center

The Benedict A. Andrew American Legion Post 286 in Queenstown recently presented the University of Maryland Memorial Hospital Foundation with a $1000 donation in support of its 2013 Year End Appeal, benefitting the Requard Radiation Oncology Center at University of Maryland Shore Regional Health’s Cancer Center.  Funds raised from the appeal will be used to support the purchase of new hardware and software to upgrade the Center’s two linear accelerators and the high dose rate brachytherapy equipment, which are devices used for the delivery of radiation treatments for cancer patients.
