This year alone (2022) we’ve seen a cancer diagnosis create a financial hardship for over 95 local patients, and have financially given over $75,000 toward basic living expenses. We hope to continue to educate, create awareness, and raise money to step-in and relive families of the financial burden of a cancer diagnosis. The Quincy Medical Group Foundation is honored for the third year to carry on the mission of the Cancer Crush event that began in loving tribute to Ted Tappe. Since 2014, Cancer Crush has raised over $591,000 to help patients with basic living expenses to allow the primary focus to be on treatment.
Proceeds from Cancer Crush have supported the Quincy Medical Group Foundation’s Oncology Patient Fund, providing assistance to any oncology patient in our community who requires financial support for day-to-day expenses. For many patients facing cancer, worries extend beyond a diagnosis. The Quincy Medical Group Oncology Patient Assistance Fund hopes to help alleviate the mental, physical, and financial burden of a cancer diagnosis by embracing our patients in each of these aspects, and we want to do it with our community’s support.
Each year, we gather together on one night for Cancer Crush in support of all those who have faced a cancer diagnosis. We hope you will consider joining us on Friday, April 7, 2023 as we continue our mission to CRUSH CANCER in our community!
