September 28, 2017
FL Guide

The Bucks for Ducks fundraiser lets you honor your breast cancer hero while helping save lives. Your donation supports Lee Health's Breast Health Centers' mammography fund to assist less fortunate patients with breast cancer detection. For the past six years in October, the ducks have transformed the reflection pond at the Regional Cancer Center into a bright, cheerful symbol of hope during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Each Bucks for Ducks donor is given their own pink rubber ducky to adorn with a personal message or to name in honor of a loved one. The rubber duckies are $3 each or two for $5. The ducks are available at the following donation sites:

Regional Cancer Center, 8931 Colonial Center Drive, Suite 200, Fort Myers

Outpatient Center at the Sanctuary Breast Center, 8960 Colonial Center Drive, Fort Myers

Outpatient Center at HealthPark Commons Breast Center, 16281 Bass Road, Suite 204, Fort Myers

Outpatient Center at Surfside, 2441 Surfside Blvd., Cape Coral

As the ducks are purchased, they are placed in the reflection pond at the Regional Cancer Center. The flock will gather throughout October in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Breast Health Center staff is more than happy to place a duck in the reflection pond for donors who are unable to come to one of the donation sites.

A memorial and blessing of the ducks will take place at noon, Oct. 31. Anyone is welcome to attend.

For more information, or to make a donation, please contact Diana Hammock at 239-343-9452.
