Dr. Vincent Scarpinato has spent his career caring for breast cancer patients at Southern Ohio Medical Center. He recently took that commitment even one step further by turning his wedding into an opportunity to raise additional funds for the Breast Cancer Compassion Fund.
By asking friends to make contributions in lieu of gifts, Dr. Scarpinato and Mr. Eric Armstrong were able to donate more than $13,000 to the fund, which supports breast cancer patients by helping cover common necessities such as utilities, medication and transportation.
“The Breast Cancer Compassion Fund is very important to our patients, and it means a lot to me personally,” Dr. Scarpinato said. “I was thrilled to be able to raise this much money for the cause.”
In addition to supporting the Breast Cancer Compassion Fund, Dr. Scarpinato is also a member of the SOMC Development Foundation. The Development Foundation encompasses fundraising efforts for a wide variety of SOMC causes, including Hospice, Heart and Vascular, Pediatrics, Community Health and Wellness, The Endowment Fund and other areas of need.
