About the NMMC Cancer Care Fund

Living with cancer is never easy, and the goal of the NMMC Cancer Care Fund is to ease the burden on patients and families. NMMC Cancer Care social workers identify patients who are in need of assistance and use HCF funds to help.

The fund provides approximately $350,000 annually to help with needs like pain and anti-nausea medications, nutritional supplements, transportation for treatment and other necessities for more than 250 patients.

A few of our recent patient assistance needs include:

• A single father who was undergoing daily chemotherapy had run out of time off at work and was let go. He was unable to afford his utility bills plus the cost of treatment, so the fund paid a few months of his utilities so he could keep his children in a home with electricity.

• An elderly couple was driving every day and told the social worker that they wouldn’t be able to come for treatment the next week because they couldn’t afford the gas costs. She offered them gas cards so the wife could continue her needed treatment.

• Our social worker noticed worn out shoes, and discovered a patient was walking 15 miles to and from treatment every day. The fund provided gas cards and new walking shoes for him. These are just a few examples of the many ways your support of Take a Swing makes a huge impact on the lives of our patients.

When you say “yes” to a sponsorship, a golf registration or other support, it means that our social workers can say “yes” to providing help and hope during difficult times.

About the Tournament

Twenty-five years ago, four women golfers – two of whom were cancer survivors – had a vision to start a charitable fund to help burdened cancer patients at the NMMC Cancer Center get through a devastating time in their lives. Their efforts led them to organize the first Take a Swing at Cancer Golf Tournament in 1995. From that early beginning the Take a Swing at Cancer Golf Tournament has continued to grow and has now become an important source of charitable support for the NMMC Cancer Care Fund.
