Since 2000, the Cancer Care Fund, supported by the Foundation of FirstHealth, has helped more than 4,000 patients get access to breast cancer screenings and treatment, as well as assistance with medication, vitamin supplements, wigs and even dental care. The fund is there for all local patients, whether they’re receiving treatment at FirstHealth, UNC or Duke.
“This is community helping community,” says director Laura Kuzma. “People are hesitant to give without knowing where the money is going. This fund puts help directly into the hands of friends and neighbors.”
