2013 Likes For Lives Fundraiser Is A SuccessDecember 12, 2013
Plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson created the annual “Likes for Lives” fundraising campaign in October, 2011, to raise money for breast cancer awareness and research. This year, the effort generated $1,048 for the OhioHealth Bing Cancer Center. Donors were able to help by simply ‘liking’ the Donaldson Plastic Surgery Facebook page. For each ‘like’ the page received, one dollar was donated to the cause.
The Bing Cancer Center is located on the OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital campus, and serves vital roles in patient education, treatment and healing. It was designed and built through the lead generosity of plastic surgeon Dr. Arthur Bing, with the vision of working with patients, providers, supportive team members, and families. In addition to world-class diagnosis and treatment, the comprehensive facility also offers progressive services like genetic counseling, wig and prosthetic shopping, meditation, art classes, nutrition and a library collection.
Last year, Donaldson Plastic Surgery raised close to $1,400 for the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research. This year, Dr. Donaldson easily surpassed his goal of 500 “likes” through the generous participation of his patients, their friends and the community at-large.
