Laundromat Owner Collects for Cancer Cure in ‘Personal Battle’

Staff Writer |

ROCKY HILL, Conn. — The owner of the local Town Line Laundromat recently gave a sizable donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the proceeds of in-store promotions, according to the Rocky Hill Patch.

Seven-time cancer survivor Nancy Sousa presented a check for $3,139 to the charity’s local affiliate, telling the Patch that it was a “personal battle” for her. Most recently, Sousa was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in May 2010.

Town Line accepted donations, held raffles and sold pink laundry bags during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, then hosted a one-day “Wash for the Cure” event in November with proceeds from self-service wash-and-dry operations going to the cause. visitors first met Sousa in early 2011 when the magazine featured her and her business.
