Dr. Lori A. Hawkins, along with her staff and patients, proudly presented Strecker Cancer Center with a check for $826 after a month-long office event recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During the month of October, donations were accepted from patients at Hawkins Family Dentistry in Belpre and Dr. Hawkins matched that and added another $500. The money donated will go to the Strecker Patient Emergency Fund that provides wigs, gas cards and other necessities to those local patients in need of assistance. Pictured are Debbie Moore, Deana Farrah, Dr. Hawkins, Carol Knepshield and Sandy Keller.
