LEWES, Del. - A local cancer center has received a large donation. The Sussex County Cancer Survivors Fund donated $25,000 to Beebe Medical Center's Tunnell Cancer Center. The money will go towards the Center's Cancer Patients Special Needs Fund.

The SCCSF has a goal of keeping Sussex County money in Sussex County. The money comes from fundraising events they held throughout the year. Cancer Patients Special Needs Fund helps patients with limited resources, by covering expenses like co-pays, or living expenses.
