"Love" Rocks Bring Hope to Local Cancer Patients in Wellington

Wellington, FL – July 19, 2017…The Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation, in conjunction with the local Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) clinic in Wellington, FL, received 200 “Go and Love” rocks from local congregation, Journey Church. The initiative recently launched by Journey Church’s student ministry aims to spread “rocks” of encouragement to the cancer patients of Florida Cancer Specialists.

The rocks have been decorated with heartfelt messages from local Palm Beach County high school and middle school students. These “love” rocks were distributed to FCS cancer patients following treatment, as a token of hope and encouragement in their battle against cancer.

“Go and Love is more than a campaign to do good; it is a way of life,” said Shad Treadaway, Campus Pastor, Journey Church, Boynton Campus. “It’s a terrific way to teach the value and meaning of loving and serving others.” The event took place on June 28th, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute located at 1037 N. State Rd 7 #303, Wellington, FL 33415.

Foundation Board Chair and FCS CEO Brad Prechtl said, “The Foundation is grateful to have local organizations like Journey Church, whose creativity provides inspiration for those fighting cancer. It is always heartwarming to see young adults making a difference within their community.”  

Lynn Rasys, Executive Director of the FCS Foundation added, “The Journey church members and youth’s compassion is inspirational. The patients’ faces lit up when they saw the baskets of painted rocks offered by the youth from the church and even asked if they could have more than one."
