Committee members from the 9th Annual Nancy McCormick Volleyball Tournament recently presented a check for $3,500 to the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute.

The tournament is hosted each year at Dunmore High School during Memorial Day Weekend by a group of family and friends of the late Nancy McCormick.  Nancy was a teacher, loving wife and mother of five who died from colon cancer.

A portion of proceeds from the tournament supports the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute’s Patient Navigation Program. The Patient Navigation Program helps low income, uninsured and underinsured individuals in northeast Pennsylvania receive necessary breast, cervical and colon cancer screenings.

To date, the tournament has raised approximately $30,500 for the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute.  The Cancer Institute invests 100% of its resources locally.
