Credit union donation helps support cancer patients

Members Advantage Credit Union recently donated $500 to the NewDay Foundation of La Porte, which helps cancer patients with the challenges that accompany treatment. NewDay delivers “Bags of Hope” to first-time chemo and radiation patients; and teddy bears, coloring books and crayons, reading / activity books to children at local hospitals to provide comfort as they experience the difficulties of cancer and side effects from chemotherapy. “We have all been touched by cancer in some form,” said Frank Beachnau, MACU President. “We have either struggled ourselves or know someone who has suffered the side effects of treatment. We are honored that our donation will go to help comfort our friends as they fight this awful disease.” From left are Beachnau, Dennis Fischer, CFO of the NewDay Foundation; and Katrina Langford, Foundation CEO.
