  • Date: 10/12/2020

On Monday, officials at University Medical Center (UMC) announced that the American Cancer Society has awarded a $17,600 transportation grant to Sobreviviendo el Cancer/Surviving Cancer Program at University Medical Center.

“Through Sobreviviendo el Cancer/Surviving Cancer Program, we provide short-term financial support to help patients stay on their treatment plan when all other funding options, including support from family members, have been exhausted. It is the program’s unyielding goal that no one diagnosed with cancer will ever be forced to choose between groceries, rent, transportation, or utilities over a treatment plan,” said Estela Casas, UMC Foundation Executive Director.
