PALM COAST, Fla., October 20, 2016 On Oct. 18, Palm Coast residents Xiomara Quinones and Miollys Greenidge donated $580 to support the Judith C. Macko Cancer Resource Center at Florida Hospital Flagler.

Xiomara and Miollys raised these funds through customer donations from family-owned-and-operated businesses Village Coffee and the Prestige Car Club, said John Subers, Florida Hospital Flagler Foundation executive director. Xiomara is a cancer survivor herself and wanted to raise funds that will help support other women in their journey.

Any cancer patient can visit the Judith C. Macko Cancer Resource Center, located on the first floor of Florida Hospital Flagler in the Cancer Center.

Florida Hospital Flagler opened the Judith C. Macko Cancer Resource Center in February 2010. It offers an extensive collection of books, brochures, articles and videotapes about cancer. Cancer patients and their families, and community members, such as health professionals, students, and teachers are welcome to use all of the library's free services. In addition, cancer patients can receive wigs, head coverings, mastectomy bras and prostheses, all free of charge.
