Sails Up 4 Cancer awards $13,000 to L+M Hospital

Sails Up 4 Cancer was proud to be an honored guest at the L + M Gala on Saturday, May 12. Bob Davis, CEO and President of Sails Up 4 Cancer presented a $13,000 check to Bill Stanley during the event.

“The money will go toward the L+M Cancer Center in Waterford, CT. The donated funds will be used for their Transportation Fund and Patients Assistance Fund. As a sub-part of the Patients Assistance Fund, L+M has established the Single Women/ Head of Household Fund., said Davis. “Sails Up 4 Cancer is extremely proud to be one of the first to acknowledge and contribute to this often neglected need.”

Sails Up 4 Cancer is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to funding research, education, care and prevention for all types of cancer.

“As they always do, Sails Up 4 Cancer has recognized an important cancer-related need in our community and stepped up to fulfill it. Very often, there is so much focus on cancer and the appropriate cures for it that some of the important incidentals – such as reliable transportation to and from treatment – can be overlooked. That is why we are so privileged to have a knowledgeable and generous partner like our good friends at Sails Up 4 Cancer. Their support for our Cancer Center and our patients over the years has been nothing short of incredible”, said Bill Stanley, Vice President of
Development & Community Relations at L+M Hospital.

“The Cancer Center is so grateful for the grant money from Sails Up 4 Cancer. We all know someone who is affected by cancer, and with the monies from this grant, we can help patients that may have no transportation to get to the Center to receive their treatments. The additional money from this grant will help with programming for our women who have minimal support at home,” said Cathy McCarthy, Oncology Licensed Clinical Social Worker at the L&M Cancer Center.
