ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Edgewell Personal Care and Cameron Smith and Associates both donated a total of $7,000 to the Cancer Challenge. The companies presented checks to the nonprofit during the Cancer Challenge Telethon on November 15.
Representatives with Edgewell presented a check to Cancer Challenge for $6,000 and say the decision to donate to Cancer Challenge was made through a democratic process where the team came together to decide where the money went.
Cameron Smith and Associates made its donation of $1,000 in honor of its former CEO, Cameron Smith, who helped spearhead the Cancer Challenge Telethon.
The Cancer Challenge’s website says it invests in the Northwest Arkansas community for direct patient services such as treatment & navigation, financial & emotional assistance, transportation, early-detection screenings & follow-up care, bereavement, charity care, tobacco prevention & cessation, community outreach, pediatric cancer care, and clinical trials.
