Flock the Hospital
Last year, the UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital Oncology Med/Surg Unit 5East team launched the “Flock the Hospital,” a fancy flamingo fundraiser for breast cancer research.
Now, the unit is getting ready to launch Flock the Hospital 2019 and the theme for this year’s fundraiser is, “we will, we will flock you,” which channels the popular Queen rock anthem. Proceeds will be donated to “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.”
Flocks will officially launch on Monday, Sept. 30 and complete their migration on Thursday, Oct. 31. The unit will have flocks available to pre-order by contacting Dana Viviano, M.S.N., R.N., nurse manager, from the end of August through the official start date.
