On April 12, 2017, the agents and representatives of Home Team Realty of Seaford made a donation of $625 to support the lung cancer screening program at the Nanticoke Cancer Care Center.

Through the support of Home Team Realty, Nanticoke’s lung cancer program will provide education and resource materials for primary healthcare providers to educate and assist patients that are at risk for lung cancer.

Studies show that by using low dose computed tomography (CT) and detecting lung cancer at an earlier stage, patients may get an average 15 years back and survivability increases by as much as 20% according to the National Lung Screening Trial, National Cancer Institute, 2011-2013. To learn more about Nanticoke’s lung cancer screening program, visit www.nanticoke.org/lungcancer.

“We are very grateful for the support of Home Team Realty to this important program for our community,” says Julia Abel, Director of the Nanticoke Cancer Care Center. “It is very heartwarming to be part of a community that invests in healthcare and paves the way for detecting cancer early.”

Each month, Home Team Realty selects a charity for their Mission of the Month program. Each agent contributes a portion of their property commission to the program.

Nanticoke would like to thank Home Team Realty for their dedication to Nanticoke’s mission to positively impact our communities’ quality of life through superior health service. To learn how you can help make a difference, visit www.nanticoke.org/community-support.
