Amelia Park Ice Arena Supports Baystate Noble Breast Cancer Program

WESTFIELD — Baystate Noble Hospital recently received a check for $1,000 from the Amelia Park Ice Arena’s October Pink in the Rink event. This donation will go the Baystate Noble Hospital Breast Cancer fund, which helps women going through breast-cancer treatment who may not be able to afford all of the expenses associated with their care.

Services at Baystate Noble include the Burk Women’s Imaging Center, where mammograms and bone densitometry testing is done, and the Comprehensive Breast Program, featuring diagnosis, treatment, and post-operative care for breast cancer. Treatment for lymphoma and alternative health sessions, such as massage and Reiki, are also offered.

Pink in the Rink at Amelia Park Ice Arena featured a Western Mass Blizzard Girls hockey game, a pink-themed public skate, raffles, and a bake sale.

“We are honored to receive this donation from the Amelia Park Ice Arena’s Pink in the Rink event for the third year in a row,” said Allison Gearing-Kalill, vice president of Community Development at Baystate Noble Hospital. “Donations like this may help your neighbor or family member who is going through cancer treatment. We are fortunate and grateful that the community supports Baystate Noble, which enables us to provide excellent care for our patients.”
