Gift to Franciscan Health Crown Point Breast Care Center in Memory of a Friend
CROWN POINT, Indiana - Staff members at Vibra Hospital of Northwest Indiana, located in Crown Point, recently donated $1,200 toward the Franciscan Health Crown Point Breast Care Center, in appreciation of the service it provided a late colleague of theirs who was treated there.
Funds were derived through various efforts conducted in November.
Chuck Nordyke, center-left, Vibra senior vice president, said annual donations are planned henceforth. Also shown, from left, are Vibra employees Hristina Jakimoska, receptionist; Rikki Vargas, administrative assistant; Natalie Jesko, chief marketing officer; Lisa Chandler, clinical liaison.

"I am truly appreciative of Vibra's generous support of our breast cancer services," Peltier said. "I am touched to accept this gift on behalf of the Franciscan Health Foundation in memory of one of their own. This is the season of giving and for remembering those we love who are no longer with us. I look forward to continuing our partnership with Vibra Healthcare."
