Caribbean Radiation Oncology Center, recognized as one of the region’s premier medical facilities for advanced radiation therapy, is proud to announce that it is the presenting sponsor for the American Cancer Society’s annual community fundraising event Relay For Life of Doral.
As the presenting sponsor of Relay For Life of Doral, Caribbean Radiation Oncology Center contributed $10,000 to the American Cancer Society’s efforts to fight and find a cure for cancer. The center will participate in all event ceremonies, beginning with the Relay For Life Kickoff Party, which will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 16, at Dave and Buster’s, 11481 N.W. 12th St. in Miami.
“It is an honor to show our commitment and support for families and loved ones who are affected by cancer and its hardships,” said Dr. Pedro A. Serrano-Ojeda, president and radiation oncologist at Caribbean Radiation Oncology Center. “While Relay For Life is a global movement, it prides itself on having a local community impact and we’re excited to be a part of this wonderful fundraising event in Doral.” In an ongoing commitment to the Doral community, the sponsorship announcement comes just a few months after the center announced that it will open a 9,000-square-foot facility at 3125 N.W. 84th Ave. in Doral. The facility will be the company’s first outside of Puerto Rico and is slated to open in the second quarter of 2015. It will be the first in Florida to feature the TomoTherapy HDA unit, the latest TomoTherapy Hi-Art Treatment System, and the most integrated, advanced system for comprehensive cancer treatment that is available today.
Relay For Life of Doral will take place from 12 to 10 p.m. on April 11, 2015, at J.C. Bermudez Park, 3000 N.W. 87th St. in Doral. Relay For Life began in 1985 with one man who walked and ran around a track for 24 hours, and raised $27,000 for the American Cancer Society. Each year, Relay For Life takes place in 6,100 communities in the United States and 20 other countries to raise funds to support the mission of the American Cancer Society to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.
