WOODSTOCK – The Family Health Partnership Clinic received a hefty donation from Gavers Community Cancer Foundation at an event last month.

Gavers presented the clinic with two checks that total $50,000 at the Care 4 Breast Cancer 5K race Oct. 20 in Woodstock.

One of the checks will benefit the expanded facility the clinic recently opened in Crystal Lake. The other will help uninsured individuals in the area receive cancer screenings and diagnostic tests.

Family Health Partnership Clinic is a community supported clinic that provides care for the underserved.

Gavers supports cancer education, prevention and research by providing to several organizations.
