Doylestown Health’s Cancer Institute receives sweet donation


Patients receiving treatment at Doylestown Health’s Cancer Institute can enjoy a sweet treat thanks to Pine2Pink, a local nonprofit organization, and Evolution Candy of Doylestown, which provided two candy dispensers recently installed in the Cancer Institute’s treatment area.

“Our patients, families and staff are so grateful for the continued generosity from our friends in the community,” said Rachel Saks, director of Doylestown Health’s Cancer Institute. “We appreciate the continued support of Pine2Pink and their efforts to give our patients comfort as they go through treatment. It means a great deal to them to be supported in this way.”

The candy dispensers were donated thanks to a collaboration between Pine2Pink and Evolution Candy, a candy store owned by James and Tracy Lamb located on State Street in Doylestown. Evolution Candy will keep the dispensers well stocked with a variety of free hard candies for patients.

The candy dispensers are the latest example of Pine2Pink’s effort to support local cancer patients. Earlier this summer, Pine2Pink presented the Cancer Institute with two coffee and beverage kiosks for patients, visitors and staff.

“Like the coffee we provide, we learned that patients in treatment sometimes get dry mouth or get a bad taste in their mouth, so these candies are welcomed,” said Keith Fenimore, founder of Pine2Pink. “As part of Pine2Pink’s commitment to help our local breast cancer patients in need and form community partnerships with businesses in town, this is a program we are thrilled to provide.”
