Lowell's Over Thirty Baseball League Hits a Home Run for Breast Cancer Survivors

Over Thirty Baseball League 2011The Over Thirty Baseball League of Greater Lowell knows how to do more than hit homers and round the bases. The group of competitive, adult ball-players recently made a donation in support of The Cancer Center at Lowell General Hospital to fund an important program for those facing breast cancer in our community.

This year's gift will fund a therapeutic day at Ironstone Farm to provide a unique, powerful experience that incorporates horses, trust, physical movement, and emotional courage. In 2011, a small group of women from the Breast Cancer Support Group and another from the Cancer Center's children's support group took part in a day-long program at the farm. Hippotherapy is a unique way to help patients and their children with coping and healing and those participating hoped that others could benefit from the same day-long experience in the future.

Lowell General Hospital is grateful for the donation by the OTB for enabling this program to be offered again in 2012.
