Richard M. Madore Dental Clinic Campaign
There are currently over 1,000 individuals on the waiting list for the Dr. Richard M. Madore Dental Clinic at CVIM. It’s a little-known fact that dental disease and poor dental health can cause major complications and illness, even death. Early diagnosis, preventative treatment, and early intervention can prevent or halt the progress of oral disease.
The Dental Clinic honors the spirit and legacy of Dr. Madore’s dedication to giving back to his community. Typical of the impact of the Dental Clinic has on our community, one of our patients writes:
Since my teeth began to break off I needed to consider total extractions. A friend and co-worker told me about CVIM and her experience with the dental staff. I became a patient and saw Dr. Stein. I was totally pleased. He is a gentle and informative dentist. The entire dental staff are very caring individuals. So glad I found CVIM! Thank you for the wonderful care. God Bless everyone who makesthese services to our community possible. I am in the process of getting dentures now that the final extraction was completed on April 16, 2019. I am looking forward to having my smile back in the months to come.
Friends & Family Campaign
Lance and Ellen Shaner once again matched dollar for dollar up to $50,000 during out 2021 Friends and Family Campaign. Lance was inspired to make their initial gift by a six-year-old CVIM patient who asked his friends for donations to CVIM instead of birthday gifts.
Thank you to our generous donors who gave hope to others. Because of their support, CVIM will be able to continue our mission, while giving hope to each patient through quality healthcare.
Run for CVIM Challenge (formerly Marathoners for Medicine)
In 2002, John Domico ran the Boston Marathon on behalf of CVIM raising $3,500. A year later, seven runners going to Boston joined John’s fundraising efforts. To date, our marathoners have raised over $800,000 for patient care.
In 2021, rhe Run for CVIM Challenge sponsored by Mount Nittany Health began on March 15. To enable as many people as possible to participate and still provide for COVID-19 safety, the event included options for a scheduled relay run as well as for individuals to plan their own runs.
