The University of Maryland Memorial Hospital Foundation received a donation from Sylvia Jeanne Carroll to support the Cancer Center at UM Shore Regional Health. As the wife of a patient treated at the Cancer Center, Carroll made the donation in appreciation of the “Everyday Hero” health care providers – John Mastandrea , MD and Robin Ford, and “all who participated in her husband’s care from the front desk and radiation crew.”

The Everyday Hero program provides patients, visitors and staff members with the opportunity to recognize and thank any UM SRH staff member or team who has made a positive difference in a visit or stay by making a financial contribution of any size to the UM Memorial Hospital Foundation or the UM Chester River Health Foundation. Funds received through gifts to the Foundations’ Everyday Hero programs help pay for equipment, capital improvements and staff education for the departments in which the employees or team work.
