N.C., — Kenmure Fights Cancer Donation Provides State-of-the-Art Exam Beds for AdventHealth Cancer Services
Apr. 27, 2023; HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – One of the strongest tools for any patient battling cancer is the support of their community, rallying beside them to help them through their journey. For the cancer patients at AdventHealth Hendersonville, that community includes the incredible generosity of the Kenmure Fights Cancer program.
The AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation is excited to share the arrival of new, state-of-the-art cancer exam beds at AdventHealth Cancer Services offices.
These advanced exam beds were made possible through the Kenmure Fights Cancer program’s 2022 donation of $64,000.18 to the AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation.
These tables allow for safe level patient transfer from standard wheelchair heights and will significantly simplify patient transfers. Each exam table costs nearly $7,000. The support from Kenmure Fights Cancer will go a long way to bringing these leading-edge exam beds to our patients.
Those patients are already expressing their gratitude for this generous support.
AdventHealth Cancer Services Medical Director, Doug Thompson, MD, shares what he has seen first-hand, “The tables have been amazing. They allow patients to easily sit down and then adjust for an exam with more comfort for the patient. Patients with limited strength and mobility are able to be examined much easier. They improve the patient experience, especially for those with disabilities and the elderly. Patients are very happy with them.”
“Since 2008, the people who call Kenmure home have shown their compassion to their neighbors and our community through their commitment to advancing cancer care in Henderson County,” said Trina Stokes, MBA, Director of AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation. “Our relationship with the incredible Kenmure Fights Cancer community has truly changed lives of patients coming to AdventHealth for cancer care through advances in technology, therapy resources and educational tools. When we walk onto the floor of our cancer centers, we can see the direct impact of Kenmure Fights Cancer.”
In the past 15 years, Kenmure Fights Cancer has donated more than $846,000 for cancer care in our community, including at AdventHealth Hendersonville. They are excited to be on “A March to a Million” in 2023. You can learn more about this on kenmurefightscancer.org.
