Stonetrust Commercial Insurance Company has announced two cancer research and treatment donation funds, as well as company donations in honor of two members of the Stonetrust team. The company recently hosted a luncheon in their Baton Rouge office to celebrate cancer survivors in the Stonetrust family and kick off their fundraising efforts for these leading nonprofits.
Stonetrust has donated $5,000 to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center (in honor of employee Lydia Acosta) and $5,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (in honor of Dawson Bunch, son of employee David Bunch).
“We wanted to honor these Stonetrust team members and their families, and celebrate their courage,” said Stonetrust President and CEO Mike Dileo. “It presents an opportunity for us to learn more and understand the challenges that accompany cancer survivorship. It’s also a great reminder of the immense strength, courage, and resilience of these individuals and their families,” Dileo said.
Dileo emphasized that while the Stonetrust family celebrates the triumphs of Lydia and Dawson, the company is acknowledging the importance of cancer prevention and continued research towards further advances in cancer treatment.
“We encourage everyone to join us by donating individually as well. Lydia and Dawson each have a unique story that brings hope to others,” Dileo said.
