Penn State Fayette Supports MVH's Cancer Center

(December 22, 2016 - Carroll Township, Pa.)

Students from Penn State Fayette recently made a donation to Monongahela Valley Hospital's (MVH) Charles L. and Rose Sweeney Melenyzer Pavilion and Regional Cancer Center. The proceeds came from a Pink Out event at an October volleyball game to help raise awareness for breast cancer.

Justin Tatar and Taylor Davis, members of the school's Community Interaction Association, helped to organize the event after learning Dr. Joann Jankoski, associate professor of Health and Human Development at Penn State Fayette, was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. The donation was raised from the sale of bracelets and 50/50 raffle tickets. The students chose MVH because they wanted to make sure the donation stayed in the community.
