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 2014, 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 2014 and beyond.
After 2013’s barn-busting inaugural event, the Boulder Facial Hair Club announced its second annual Beard and Moustache Competition, which will take place this fall at Longmont’s historic Dickens Opera House and benefit RMCA. The competition judges will include 2013 World Champion Freestyle winner and founder of the Terminal Length Beard Club Aarne Bielefeldt, and US National Full Beard Natural runner-up and Austin Facial Hair Club founder Bryan Nelson.
