‘Story’ Raises $16,000 For Cancer Patients

Dr. Vincent Scarpinato (second from right) recently presented SOMC Cancer Services Director Wendi Waugh with approximately $16,000 in funds generated from “The Story Goes On,” an all-woman performance held at the Portsmouth Little Theatre to raise awareness about breast cancer. Local performers presented stories about breast cancer survivors in dialogue and song during the show, which Dr. Scarpinato produced and directed. Shown with Waugh and Scarpinato are (left) Kelly Lawson, clinical manager of Oncology Services at SOMC, and (right) breast cancer survivor and patient advocate Norma White, purchasing analyst for SOMC Cancer Services. The funds will support the SOMC Breast Cancer Compassion Fund, designed to help patients who need financial support.
