Last week, First Lady Casey DeSantis visited Nemours Specialty Care Clinic in Jacksonville to highlight Florida’s investments in cancer research and care.
During the visit, First Lady DeSantis presented the First Lady’s Medal for Courage, Commitment, and Service to Child Life Specialist Joli Craver. Ms. Craver supports pediatric patients and their parents as they undergo cancer treatment by encouraging play, learning, and self-expression. Nemours Children’s Health is one of the many hospital systems in Florida that takes an innovative approach to cancer research and care. To support cancer centers across the state, Gov. Ron DeSantis has recommended $100 million for cancer research and care in Florida’s 2022-2023 budget, an increase of $37 million, or nearly 60 percent, over prior year funding.
