Since our creation in 2000, by a group of Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers physicians, RMCA has provided over $3 million in financial assistance to more than 5,000 cancer survivors receiving treatment in Colorado. Assistance from RMCA is for a patient's basic needs, and can include rent or mortgage, utilities, car payments and car insurance, health insurance and COBRA, and help with other day-to-day expenses. Our focus is on providing assistance to our local community by serving low-income Colorado cancer patients across the state.
In 2013, we have seen the need for our program continue to grow. We receive more applications each month as patients struggle to meet their monthly financial needs while remaining in treatment. We are proud that since our inception, 100% of qualified applicants have received funding through RMCA's Financial Assistance program. We work every day to fulfill our mission to provide temporary financial support to cancer patients undergoing treatment and we hope you will continue to support us in 2013 and beyond.
Save on Shaving Razors While Supporting Cancer Assistance with ShaveMOB
Rocky Mountain Cancer Assistance is partnering with ShaveMOB.com to support Breast Cancer Awareness and Movember by raising money to benefit cancer patients and their families receiving treatment in Colorado. ShaveMOB pledged to donate $0.25 per order throughout the months of October and November to Rocky Mountain Cancer Assistance.
After having success with the Pink Razors for Pink Ribbons program in October, ShaveMOB expanded the program through the end of November to focus on men’s health and prostate cancer support. This program is complemented with a cheeky ShaveMOB “Moustache Monocle” created for those who cannot or will not grow facial hair. ShaveMOB’s effort will be capped off with a Photo Booth effort on November 30 in Denver’s Larimer Square where passersby can show their support for cancer awareness and have their photos taken with the Moustache Monocle or other props.
Zach Randall, ShaveMOB CEO, said "At ShaveMOB, we stand for the benefits that our customers have come to realize: saving money, time, and reducing your environmental impact. But customer or not, we’re also about making a stand for the benefit of humanity. Joining the fight against cancer is one of them. We are hopeful we can help make an impact."
After a lengthy selection process, ShaveMOB chose to partner with RMCA as the company felt it could drive the most measurable impact at the local level. Grace Castellanos, Executive Director of the Colorado-based non-profit, said “RMCA is very excited about the prospect of partnering with ShaveMOB. Since 2000, we’ve provided over $3 million in financial assistance to more than 5,000 cancer survivors, and programs like this will help continue our mission.”
