As per the Bylaws, the Kenmure Fights Cancer Board of Directors voted that 50% of the funds raised in the year 2023 be donated to the Pardee Cancer Center.

"If you have been diagnosed with cancer, you want the best care available. What’s more, you want it close to home with caring doctors, nurses and staff helping you understand your diagnosis, your treatment options and the entire process in between."

The Pardee Cancer Center was opened in 2016 in order to "offer you comprehensive cancer services under one roof. In addition to diagnosing and treating your cancer, we offer a support team to help lessen your fears and guide you every step of the way. Pardee Cancer Center is the only comprehensive cancer center in Henderson County."                                          https://www.pardeehospital.org/care-treatment/cancer/

    This is the 15th year that our funds have assisted cancer patients at Pardee. During this period, Kenmure Fights Cancer has donated $422,951.27 to this worthwhile organization. Click for year-by-year donations.

    Use of 2023 funds:

    Part 1: Simulator Laser Marking System ($15,000). Highly specialized CT scanner for the purpose of precisely locating the tumor. Aids in delivering the dose to the lesion, while avoiding critical surrounding structures. Employs 3D imaging 

    Part 2: SunCHECK Quality Assurance Platform ($38,000). The linear accelerator must undergo multiple checks each day to ensure proper operation. The proposed Platform will consolidate all Quality Assurance tests and data into one cloud-based solution. By integrating testing devices and results, Pardee will be able to access all data from one database, thereby providing robust analysis and trending of machine performance.

    Use of 2019 - 2020 - 2021 funds:

    Mobile Mammography Coach:

    Pardee has identified certain geographic areas that have a high rate of Stage 4 Breast Cancer. The idea of taking testing directly to these areas was conceived in the Spring of 2019. Kenmure Fights Cancer kicked off the campaign with our donation that Fall. 

    • Since early detection depends on education, availability and the funds to make it happen, certain populations don’t get treated early enough.
    • In order to reach them, Pardee planned to establish a "bus" that will go into these areas and to local businesses to offer free exams. 

    Production was anticipated in early 2020. Then, boom, the pandemic hit and all Pardee non-COVID-19 projects were put on hold. Understanding its importance, we supported it again in 2020 and once again in 2021. Then came the "chips problem, causing another delay for this project originally estimated to cost $950,000.

    Kenmure Fights Cancer donated a total of
    $148,000.54 toward this project,
    making us its largest donor.
