Catwalk for BMC Cancer Care
Thank you to all our sponsors, staff and friends whose support of the 2015 Catwalk for BMC Cancer Care raised a record-breaking $300,000 for cancer patient support services at Boston Medical Center. BMC’s Cancer Care Center not only delivers state-of-the-art treatment, but also offers holistic care to address needs that fall outside standard medicine. Through the support of donors and events such as Catwalk, BMC provides transportation services for patients otherwise unable to get to their appointments, complementary therapies such as yoga and acupuncture to ease treatment side effects, interpreter services for patients whose first language is not English and patient navigation services to remove any barriers to treatment. These services are offered free-of-charge, understanding that the best health care is more than just a prescription or chemotherapy appointment, the best health care means ensuring patients are thriving both at the hospital and at home. BMC’s vulnerable patient population deals with exceptionally challenging circumstances, making BMC’s mission to provide full-service, comprehensive care truly unique.
