Likes For Lives Campaign to Benefit OhioHealth Bing Cancer Center

likes-for-livesEach October, plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson sponsors the Likes for Lives Campaign — a fundraiser whose proceeds go directly to cancer research within the community. For the third year in a row, Donaldson Plastic Surgery will be raising money during Breast Cancer awareness month. To help out, anyone online can simply “like” the Donaldson Plastic Surgery Facebook page. For each like they receive during the month of October, Dr. Donaldson and his staff will donate $1 to the OhioHealth Bing Cancer Center.

The OhioHealth Cancer Center is a facility located on the campus of Riverside Methodist Hospital where patients can receive a multitude of services aimed at treating cancer, supporting patients and their families, and promoting health and well being. The Center provides a comprehensive, holistic approach to cancer with resources ranging from therapy, imaging, testing, nutrition, wig-shopping, genetic counseling, clinical research and meditation – all under one roof.

Last year, Dr. Donaldson was able to raise almost $1400 for the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research. He hopes to have the chance to donate even more to the OhioHealth Bing Cancer Center this year.

Likes for Lives participants don’t even have to spend their own money to donate to the Bing Cancer Center; just click to help out at: https://www.facebook.com/DonaldsonPlasticSurgery.

One of Donaldson Plastic Surgery’s Very Own to Receive Honorary Recognition

bobbieDonaldson Plastic Surgery is proud to have a dedicated team of professionals on board. Dr. Donaldson’s surgical first assistant, Bobbie Perry, has recently been recognized as one of the fifty most influential graduates from Columbus State Community College. The school is preparing to celebrate its 50th anniversary, and in honor of the special occasion, they are recognizing students and former graduates who have excelled in their fields to make a difference within their community. See more here: http://cscc.edu/50/stories/Bobbie-Perry.shtml

Bobbie was a full-time mother for many years until she decided to continue her education with a degree in accounting. She soon realized she loved the medical field more, and she switched to the Surgical Technology program. She worked as a surgical assistant for eight years before wanting to do more. She loved being a part of the surgical team, so she enrolled in classes yet again to become a surgical first assistant. After completing coursework and 150 hours of clinical supervision, Bobbie joined the team at
Donaldson Plastic Surgery.

Bobbie is now a fixture at Donaldson Plastic Surgery – beloved by patients, co-workers and Dr. Donaldson alike. She has a reputation for being kind, knowledgeable, supportive, empathetic, and always going above and beyond in her approach to patient care. Come by and visit Bobbie anytime, unless she is helping in the operating room!
