WHEELING, W.Va -
Riesbeck's Food Markets made a generous donation to Wheeling Hospital's Breast Cancer Center on Wednesday.
Riesbeck's sold boxed lunches on Fridays in October and raised almost $3,000 to help local women who are battling breast cancer at Wheeling Hospital. Delallo's Italian foods contributed to the cause as well.
Deborah Radosevich, a Breast Patient Navigator, is grateful for the donation, saying it will go a long way to help women in their cancer center.
"We have about 107 women annually diagnosed at Wheeling Hospital with breast cancer," she says. "Many of those women need assistance with either copays that they can't afford, or financial assistance to help them eliminate barriers to getting their prescribed treatment."
Riesbeck's representatives said they are looking forward to raising even more money during Breast Cancer Awareness Month next year.
