All proceeds from this year’s event helped raise funds for the purchase of infusion chairs designed to help keep patients comfortable during long chemotherapy sessions. The chairs will allow the patient to lie flat, if they so desire, and contain several other features, including a DVD player and ports to plug in a computer or iPad, to help time pass more quickly.
