St. Elizabeth Family Birthplace in Edgewood, KY

"Labor and delivery"

When two of their own fell ill at the St. Elizabeth Family Birthplace, the staff offered the same compassion and care that they offer provide patients. Thanks to their loving and dedicated coworkers, these two women received $45,000 to assist in the battle for their health.

We have two coworkers/friends battling metastatic cancer, and we were able to raise nearly $45,000 for them with a benefit thanks to our group Beat a Curse Support a Nurse. We also received help from our coworkers, families, friends, and other kind souls from the community who wanted to donate.

Other hospital departments bought and put together gift baskets for our silent auction, and outside businesses contacted us to see how they could help. Many businesses either donated or sold products to us at a discount for our benefit event.

The benefit made a tremendous impact on the lives of the two St. Elizabeth staffers affected by cancer. (Credit: Jennifer Kinman)
