Help Pacific Cancer Foundation serve Maui County residents

By Staff | Jan 8, 2015

The Pacific Cancer Foundation plays an important role in Maui County by providing access, knowledge and support to promote optimal care and to improve the quality of life for cancer patients, survivors and their families.

Recognizing that residents needed help in their fights with this awful disease, the independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit was founded in 2005 by a group of concerned health care professionals and cancer survivors.

All PCF services – including cancer support groups, clinics and transportation assistance to treatment – are provided at no charge.

Maui businesses can help PCF by sponsoring events. Dollie’s Pub & Cafe in Kahana recently held “Touchdowns for Tatas” during Monday Night Football, raising over $4,200 to support cancer patients on Maui.

“We are so thankful for the generous contribution made by Dollies with the help of Debbie Patton,” said Nancy La Joy, executive director of the Pacific Cancer Foundation.

“The support of local small businesses means so much to our organization.”

Residents and merchants are also welcome to make a personal donation to PCF in honor of a family member or friend, or attend a foundation event. Contact La Joy at 242-7661 or visit www.pacificcancerfoundation.org to learn how you can get involved.

Keep in mind that 100 percent of the organization’s operating revenues stay in Maui County to help residents here.
