EMBRACE – Oncology Patient Fund
Quincy Medical Group’s (QMG) Director of Community Relations Laura Tenhouse said, “The Oncology Patient Assistance Fund has always been a pass-through for our community to donate funds that are gifted to any oncology patient in our community who requires financial support for day-to-day expenses. As large gatherings were canceled so too were some of the largest contributors to our fund like Cancer Crush and Buzz Off. We needed to find a new way to embrace this vulnerable group and that’s where this fundraiser was born.”
All funds raised by the QMG’s non-profit foundation, support financial needs in the community and CEO Carol Brockmiller said, “When we started the QMG Foundation 13 years ago, we wanted to impact the health of our community in accordance with our mission.
Over the years, the mission of the foundation has changed and now we have the Oncology Patient Assistance Fund, the Moments that Matter Fund, the Tim Haley fund as well as our general fund. Now seemed like a good time to focus on the oncology patients in the community as so many general COVID-19 related funds have been created.”
