All of the proceeds from our events will go to the following causes:
When we donate to Markey, we choose where our support goes. We have chosen to support patient lodging and transportation assistance. Our patients treated with radiation at the Markey Cancer Center will have treatments 5 times a week!
For most of them that live all around the Bluegrass state, traveling 5 hours a day for 6 weeks is NOT feasible. We will provide hotel lodging and gas cards for these patients.
-This is where we come in. We thank you and our patients thank you.
A patient arrived for preoperative appointments for surgery the next morning. Unfortunately, she was not able to utilize one of our local lodging resources, as she had her teenagers who were staying with her. This patient was granted assistance with one of our gift cards available thanks to the Markey Cancer Foundation and the Patient Support Fund which she was so grateful for, as she would have had to drive 2 hours home late that day only to return again early in the morning for her surgery.
