OHC, the region’s premier source of treatment for nearly every form of adult cancer and complex blood disorder, is pleased to share that Joseph R. H. See, MD, a medical oncologist and hematologist at OHC Springfield and Dayton, was the top fundraiser for Springfield’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign, a program of the American Cancer Society.
Dr. See also finished 9th in the state, and 66th out of approximately 4000 nationally.
“It was an honor to participate in Springfield’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign. I wanted to do it in honor of my mother, who is a breast cancer survivor, for everyone we have lost to breast cancer, and for those who continue to struggle with it,” said Dr. See at the awards ceremony.
Dr. See singled-handedly raised $16,677, which was almost half of the total amount raised for the Springfield campaign. The overall campaign raised $34,906.17.
Dr. See says he didn’t host any fundraising events, but instead relied on text messaging.
“I would just text people I know and they responded by donating,” he explained. “I’m so blessed to have such wonderful friends and colleagues, some of whom I hadn’t been in touch with for quite a while. This campaign gave me a chance to reconnect with them.”
Dr. See also had what he called a “secret weapon.”
“They say that behind every successful man is a woman. My wife is the epitome of this. She is my secret weapon. This would not have been possible without her support,” he added.
Every dollar raised through the Real Men Wear Pink campaign helps the American Cancer Society save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support.
