CareOne At Evesham Assisted Living Executive Director Donates Hair In Honor Of Colleague Facing Cancer
When CareOne launched the CareOne Cancer Fund In Honor Of Dan Grimes, Inc. to assist employees who have been diagnosed with cancer and their families, CareOne at Evesham Assisted Living Executive Director Rosemarie Tierney got involved in developing initiatives to benefit the fund. Inspired by her colleague Jennifer who was fighting her own battle with cancer, Rosemarie decided to make a more personal contribution to the cause. “We spend a lot of time with our extended work family,” she explained. “Watching Jennifer handle a cancer diagnosis with such strength and grace was truly inspiring. I felt that donating my hair was the least I could do.”
Rosemarie donated 19 inches of hair to Locks Of Love, a non-profit organization that provides hair pieces to children suffering from long-term medical hair loss, and raised $500 for the CareOne Cancer Fund In Honor Of Dan Grimes, Inc.
