Supporting Childhood Cancer Foundation
For several years, the Clerk's office employees have generously supported the Childhood Cancer Foundation,
a local charity dedicated to assisting families of children with cancer. The Childhood Cancer Foundation is
committed to ensuring that no one has to face the diagnosis of childhood cancer alone, and secondly,
they provide financial assistance to childhood cancer families during the most difficult time of their lives!
We are very proud to announce that on February 16th, the Clerk's office Human Resources Generalist, Robin Beaulieu,
was installed as the new President of the CCF Board! This is a volunteer position that will be as rewarding as it is
challenging. Many deputy Clerks attended the event to support Robin and the great work of the organization.
In Robin's address to the Foundation after being sworn in by DeLand Mayor, Bob Apgar, she shared her passion and
dedication to taking the Foundation to new heights of success in fundraising and helping the community. Robin said
that CCF needs to do more and she will give her all to help that happen. She explained the growing need, "the American Cancer
Foundation estimated there will be 1,688,780 new cancer cases in 2017 and 600,920 of those diagnosed will not survive.
Of that number, 250,000 of the new cases will affect children under the age of 20. This means that 1 in every 285 children
will be diagnosed with cancer under the age of 20 and 91,000 of them will not survive."
The Clerk's office is honored to play a part in helping CCF in their important mission and we wish Robin the best in her new role!
