Members of LIFE FORCE Air Medical and the Chattanooga Fire Department donated $5,000 to the Believe campaign for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger in honor of Lisa Hudson, an Erlanger LIFE FORCE team member and wife of a Chattanooga firefighter.
When Lisa Hudson was diagnosed with a second bout of cancer late last year, her LIFE FORCE and CFD family wanted to do something in her honor. They decided to host a fund raiser called “Cueballs and Color for Cancer” where participants could have their heads shaved, have a strip of hair dyed pink or simply donate money to the cause.
This fundraiser successfully raised $5,000 for pediatric oncology patients at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, a group Ms. Hudson specifically wanted to support.
“As an EMS community and family we wanted to come together to support Lisa during this difficult time in a fun but meaningful way,” said Stacy Prater, clinical educator at LIFE FORCE. “We wanted to do something in her honor and to show our support for her and her family. Chattanooga firefighters, as always, have been a great partner and work hard to help our community. We are so proud of the outpouring of support and of making Lisa’s wish of helping children with cancer a reality.”
