DALLAS (Aug. 27, 2019) – ACE Cash Express associates raised $20,561 during ACE’s annual fundraising event, the Give A Little Campaign, for the St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital. The clinic, located in Charlotte, North Carolina, is one of eight St. Jude affiliate clinics across the country that provides life-saving medical care and access to clinical trials for children with cancer and blood disorders.
“When you have a sick child, the only thing you should have to worry about is being there for them,” said Dr. Jessica Bell, pediatric oncologist and clinic lead at the affiliate clinic. “We appreciate this generous gift that will help local families in their fight against pediatric cancer.”
