We are living in a global event most of us could not have imagined just a few months ago. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented changes in all of our lives, with profound upheavals in family, social, home, financial and work situations.
And not only is this pandemic affecting our most vulnerable including cancer patients – it has also changed the lives of those that who care for them: our health care workers
Hospitals are rapidly shifting to adapt to the evolving demands of caring for COVID-19 patients, and Roswell Park
is no exception.
Through the month of May, Future of Roswell Society donations will go toward the Roswell Park COVID-
19 Response Fund, which will be used immediately to help our patients and staff in four vital areas.
What is Roswell Park?
Driven to eliminate cancer’s grip on humanity, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center has a long history of cancer care. Founded in 1898 as the nation’s first cancer research center, Roswell Park grew from the vision of Dr. Roswell Park. This highly respected surgeon believed that investigations in the lab and the clinic should go hand in hand. We’ve offered our patients this combined approach to cancer care for well over a century.
Today, Roswell Park is one of the leading cancer facilities in the country. Our research has led to historic breakthroughs in the way we understand, prevent and cure cancer. That expertise also enhances how we train the next generation of physician leaders.
What is the Roswell Park Alliance Foundation?
Established in 1991, the Roswell Park Alliance Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that manages all donations made to Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Its mission is to maximize dollars available for Roswell Park’s most promising research, treatment and prevention programs while supporting the psychosocial needs of patients and families touched by cancer.
