Celestine Burrell, Pamela Davis, Della Watkins, Faye Burley and Linda Mathis, all members of St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church in Rome, recently raised $500 to benefit Cancer Navigators.

During the month of October, the church is observing Breast Cancer Awareness in support of those suffering from and affected by cancer, as well as in remembrance of those lost to cancer.

Cancer Navigators guides families through some of the hardest times with tenderness and compassion. The donation has a special meaning for church member Ms. Pamela Davis.

“The navigators were instrumental in my sister’s fight against metastatic breast cancer,” Davis said. “The navigators helped with medical paperwork, gaining access to medical care and helped our family have a better understanding of insurance and medical needs. We are so thankful and blessed to have this organization in our hometown.”

The navigators also work with other local organizations to provide groceries for cancer patients and assist with transportation assistance by providing gas cards so patients can travel to lifesaving treatments.

“This $500 donation will be a tremendous help in providing transportation assistance with gas cards to cancer patients undergoing treatment. We are so grateful for this donation” states Jonna Duke Office and Outreach Coordinator of Cancer Navigators.

St. Paul A.M.E., under the leadership of Pastor John Woods, chose Cancer Navigators because the donation will help local cancer patients and their families with resources. Giving to back to the community is of special importance to the church and Cancer Navigators is well-deserving, church members said.
