Local Plastic Surgeon Fights Cancer via FacebookSeptember 10, 2013
As a plastic surgeon, Columbus, OH, resident Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson successfully raised cancer research funds with his annual Likes for Lives campaign.
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson, one of the busiest plastic surgeons in Columbus, OH, has completed his annual Likes for Lives campaign; a fundraising mission to increase research coffers during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For every person who “liked” his Facebook page, Dr. Donaldson donated $1 to the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research.
Without ever digging into their own pocketbook, people across the nation were able to aid cancer research with just the click of a button. This year the campaign raised $1,393. Dr. Donaldson is one of the few plastic surgeons in Columbus, OH, who have made a contribution of this size in the fight to eliminate breast cancer.
“Breast cancer has affected many of our patients, employees and colleagues over the years,” said Dr. Donaldson. “Every day, treatment breakthroughs continue through laboratory and clinical research, but there is still much more to do. The fight is ongoing, and I want to do my part to help.”
Stefanie Spielman and her husband, Chris, launched the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research in 1998 after she discovered a lemon-size lump in her breast. She was just 30 years old. The couple initially decided to raise $250,000 for research. Within six months they raised more than $1 million, and the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research was born. Today, it’s raised more than $8 million nationwide.
