More on the Cancer Specialists Foundation
The Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation was established in January 2011 to offer financial assistance to Florida Cancer Specialists patients undergoing treatment and having difficulty keeping up with other living expenses such as electric, water or rent/mortgage. The Foundation was started by a group of FCS physicians who personally donated to create a $500,000 fund to kick off the organization’s efforts. Since then, the group has developed a series of fundraisers to help raise funds for these grants and scholarships. Through a series of mergers and acquisitions, the Foundation has grown significantly since its launch, having awarded over $3.5 million in grants to cancer patients.
