Community supports Campus Security employee with cancer

As 23-year-old Belmont campus security dispatcher Benjanique Amos fights against an aggressive brain tumor, the Belmont community stands behind her in support.

Vice President for Administration and University Counsel Jason Rogers emailed a link to faculty and staff on March 28, encouraging financial support for Amos through donations.

As of Wednesday morning, 72 faculty and staff members donated over $3,000 to help pay for Amos’ treatment.

Amos’ family hopes that proton therapy — an extremely costly method of treatment — would help in ways past treatments could not.

And now because of the support from the Belmont community, Amos will begin treatment next week.

This week featured several events to support Amos through donations and prayer.

Sponsored by the Office of Human Resources, a bake sale took place in the Massey Business Center starting at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday. All proceeds went to benefit Amos.

Additionally, University Ministries, Human Resources, Campus Security and the University Staff Advisory Council are sponsoring a prayer service that will take place in the Bell Tower Chapel on Friday at 11:30 a.m..

Rogers encouraged continued support from the community.

“All are invited to spend time together praying for Benjanique, her family, and medical providers,” he said in the email.
