General Donations


PATIENT NAVIGATOR PROGRAM

  • Provides support and guidance to patients and caregivers
  • Site-based navigators at four separate hospitals in North Texas
  • Support available by phone or in person

More than 2,800 North Texas patients, many whom are medically underserved, received Navigation support in 2014.

PATIENT TRANSPORTATION

Cancer patients miss or forgo potentially life-saving treatments because they:

  • Cannot afford transportation
  • Are too ill to drive themselves to their treatments
  • Do not know anyone who can drive them.

American Cancer Society provides:

  • Daily rides
  • Bus passes
  • Taxi vouchers  

In 2014, we provided more than 9,091 rides to North Texas cancer patients.

The 2016 funding needs in North Texas for this program will exceed $150,000.

GENERAL DONATION TO RESEARCH

A general donation to Cattle Baron's Ball will benefit American Cancer Society-funded cancer research programs, many of which are here in North Texas.
