Foundation supports cancer victim costs
St. Peter’s Health Foundation will host a Pinwheel and Cancer Survivor Celebration May 24 for the 2018 Pinwheel Pledge Campaign, which raises funds to ensure local cancer patients have access to comprehensive cancer care.
Community members have made contributions to the Pinwheel Pledge Campaign in honor of cancer survivors or in memory of loved ones who have passed. The name of each person honored or memorialized will be displayed with colored pinwheels planted near the waterfall at St. Peter’s Health Regional Medical Center.
Funds raised through the campaign provide direct assistance to local cancer patients for items not covered by insurance such as transportation to treatment, specialty supplies like prosthetics, wigs and more. The funds are also used to support the St. Peter’s Health Cancer Treatment Center, which in 2017 saw more than 15,000 patient visits. The funds raised help the Center invest in equipment and technology to continually improve and expand local cancer care.
