(March 27, 2020) Steve and Dawne Pappas of The Original Greene Turtle on 116th Street in Ocean City, recently presented a $15,000 check to the American Cancer Society.

The donation will support three American Cancer Society programs, which attack cancer from several angles.

They include:

Road to Recovery, which provides free rides to treatment for cancer patients and ResearcHERS, a new program that fuels funding for American Cancer Society-funded female researchers to support more breakthroughs in the fight against cancer.

In addition, Dawne Pappas has signed on as the first ResearcHERS ambassador for the Greater Philadelphia campaign.

The third program is the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge of Baltimore, which provides free lodging for cancer patients traveling long distance to Baltimore for treatment.

Baltimore Hope Lodge has 26 patient guest rooms and provides door-to-door transportation for patients to their cancer treatment facilities.

This home away from home features a kitchen where guests can prepare meals, laundry room, library, great room and guest activities.

From breakthrough research, to free lodging near treatment, a 24/7/365 live helpline, free rides to treatment, and convening powerful activists to create awareness and impact, the society is the only organization attacking cancer from every angle.
