The Lexington Medical Center Foundation’s Cancer Care Fund helps patients in need by purchasing critical medications and supplies, and providing emergency assistance with utilities and other living expenses when other resources have run out. From paying a light bill to picking up the tab for a prescription, the Cancer Care Fund affects the most important needs of our hospital’s cancer patients.
Thanks to the generosity of donors throughout our community, the Lexington Medical Center Foundation’s Cancer Care Fund has also provided a Healing Garden for patients at Lexington Oncology, a Research Suite for clinical trials, and a Resource Room where patients can learn about their disease, medications, nutrition and exercise information. And, contributions to the Cancer Care Fund have helped to provide therapy programs, counseling, support groups and entertainment for patients during treatment.
