Omaha, NE (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Aureus Medical Group, a nationwide leader in healthcare staffing, has announced its sponsorship of SMAC!, (Sock Monkey’s Against Cancer) and its fundraising campaign related to the launch of a product line of stuffed companions, which provide support to those battling cancer.
Launched by entrepreneur Jennifer Windrum in honor of her mother, who has been undergoing cancer treatment for several years, SMAC! is a line of specially designed sock monkeys created for the purpose of reminding patients that no one fights cancer alone.
Funds raised will enable Windrum to move forward with production and distribution. Long term, Windrum plans to donate to cancer patients one SMAC! monkey for each one purchased; commit a portion of sales to cancer research and programs; and establish partnerships and outreach with healthcare providers.
"On behalf of the thousands of employees we have working at hospitals throughout the United States, Aureus Medical is proud to support this positive endeavor that will provide patients of all ages with some level of comfort when they need it the very most,” said Craig Wolf, vice president and general manager, Aureus Medical Group. “We wish Jennifer all the best in her important and worthy venture."
Fundraising for SMAC! will continue through November 30, 2012. For more information, visit SMAC's campaign website.
