Cancer care at Community
Shakin’ booty turned into kickin’ cancer’s booty
Nearly 900 donors united in a fight against cancer at The Giving Gig 2014, a Community Health Network Foundation event that raised $600,000 for our cancer patients during Valentine’s Day weekend. Funds raised at the sold-out event establish a new cancer patient assistance fund to give struggling cancer patients easy access to wigs, prescriptions, food, transportation and much more. Donations also provide free genetic testing to our low-income patients at risk of a cancer diagnosis.
To donate to our Cancer Patient Assistance Fund, visit give.ecommunity.org/support.
