2019 A Cause to Celebrate - A Look Back
While donations are continuing to come in, we are anticipating that we will surpass $540,000 raised that will benefit those in our community who are battling cancer. We are so grateful to all of our sponsors and attendees who came together in the spirit of community to raise funds for Shore Cancer Center. Congratulations to Dr David May who was honored for his compassionate and quality care that he provides to our patients, and for being such an integral part of the Cancer Center team

This year, proceeds will specifically help Shore convert the oncology pharmacy in the cancer center to a negative pressure room in order to meet new federal requirements for all facilities that store and administer cancer-fighting medications. Chemotherapy and other drugs that kill cancer can have a serious impact on the health of those who handle them if there is a spill, and this update will help to keep them safer.
Proceeds this year will also continue to fund Shore Cancer Center’s ongoing subscription to Penn Medicine’s telegenetics program, which gives oncologists a greater understanding of the patient’s genetic markers so they can provide more targeted and effective treatment. Genetic testing through the program also is a necessary precursor to accessing certain trade drugs and biosimilars.
