Bob Benoit, a cancer survivor from Epping, N.H., was recently honored for his commitment to Exeter Hospital’s Center for Cancer Care. Moved by the level of treatment he received and the compassionate care of the clinical staff at the Center for Cancer Care, Bob decided to join the Major Gifts Initiative Team. The team is made up of former patients and community members who share in the hospital’s mission of improving the health of the community.
“I asked Bob if he could help me share the great work of the Center for Cancer Care and his response was ‘Count me in,’ ” recalls Dan Raposa, director of advancement for Exeter Health Resources. “Exeter Hospital is so fortunate to have the support of people like Bob. His generosity is greatly appreciated and he fully deserves to be honored. His gift of time and financial support has made a lasting impact on the Center for Cancer Care, allowing us to continue serving our community with the highest level of care.”
An avid golfer, Benoit was honored at the Portsmouth Country Club following Exeter Hospital’s Health and Wellness Lecture Series event on April 19. The lecture, presented by Ashton Stanton, MD of Core Physiatry & Spine Care, focused on golf injuries. Bob’s love for golf and his experience with the Center for Cancer Care is featured in a video that can be viewed at Exeter Hospital’s new website,www.UnitedinWellness.org, which highlights the organization’s patient experiences and philanthropic efforts. “Bob is one of those unique community members with the ability to make a real difference,” said Raposa. “We are so proud to have him on our team.”
