Cumberland Farms to Help Fight Childhood Cancer

06/17/2009
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- New England convenience store chain Cumberland Farms plans to help fight childhood cancer during an event at Children’s Hospital Boston, company President Ari Haseotes announced in a press release.

In the month of July, the company will donate five cents per cup of coffee—including its signature Farmhouse Blend—sold in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire, to Children’s Hospital Boston to fund pediatric cancer research.

"This campaign gives customers the opportunity to support a great cause while enjoying a delicious, affordable cup of coffee," Haseotes, whose son is a cancer survivor, said in the release.

The physician spearheading the funded research is Scott Armstrong, MD, PhD in Children’s Hospital Hematology/Oncology and Medicine departments.

"Children's Hospital Boston has taken the lead in radically improving survival rates for pediatric cancer through cutting-edge research and exceptional inpatient care," said Dr. Armstrong. "Cumberland Farms’ gift will help us continue research to develop life-saving cancer treatments."
