Digestive Health Specialists Teams Up With Roc Solid Foundation

Roc Solid Foundation provides playsets to children battling cancer

Digestive Health Specialists teamed up with Roc Solid Foundation on Saturday, July 31, 2021, to provide a playset to a child fighting cancer in Lexington, NC.

The sponsorship supports the nonprofit’s program, Play It Forward, which surprises kids fighting cancer with brand new playsets in their backyards.

“Digestive Health Specialists is excited to sponsor and team up with Roc Solid Foundation to support their mission of building custom playsets in the backyards of kids fighting cancer,” said Digestive Health Specialists CEO Todd Pittman. “I am proud of the DHS family for volunteering their time and energy to provide 4-year-old Lynix and her family happiness during their challenging times as she battles Burkitt lymphoma/leukemia. Giving back to others and our community is truly the most gratifying experience one can feel. Thank you to all our providers and staff who came out to give back!”

Roc Solid Foundation’s mission is to build hope for families fighting pediatric cancer through the power of play. Because when kids are playing, cancer is the farthest thing from their minds, and with compromised immune systems, they need a safe place to play more than ever.

Our physicians were happy to not only sponsor the event but also participate. Dr. Marcum Gillis, one of the physicians at Digestive Health Specialists and President of Physicians of Digestive Health Specialists, P.A. commented, “Digestive Health Specialists, P.A. is very excited to partner with the Roc Solid Foundation to build a playground for Lynix. Community support is so vital to a speedy recovery, and we are happy to sponsor such a great project.”

We look forward to continuing our support to the Piedmont-Triad community.
