The practice is also encouraging patients to support and share in this effort to help women diagnosed with breast cancer accepting donations at the office every day of the week. Those who contribute will be recognized with a Pink Tooth and entered into a raffle supported by other local businesses. At the end of October, the bags will be hand-filled with lotions, candies, magazines, anti-nausea medications and other items that bring comfort to those getting chemotherapy treatments. Then, Dr. Raines and staff will personally deliver them to the Penn Medicine Abramson Cancer Center in Philadelphia, PA.
“Last year was such a rewarding success that we couldn’t wait to support this effort once again,” says practice owner, Jason Raines, DDS. “To read that about 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime is heartbreaking. The likelihood of it hitting close to home is inescapable. So, this year we decided to make it a bit more personal by creating Chemo Care Bags for those actually in the fight.” Pink Wednesdays is only one of the efforts Dr. Raines has implemented or supported to help those in need. Other programs have included Access to Care as an Albert Schweitzer Fellow, Give Kids a Smile, Dentistry From the Heart and “Take Mom to the Dentist” this past May. He adds, “there is nothing more rewarding than giving back.”
