The MLC Cancer Foundation continues to achieve its mission to assist patients when diagnosed. In addition to financial support, our foundation educates all on preventative options and also testing benefits for the entire family. This year, we will partner with both Invitae and the Martinsville Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness, to bring the most informative symposium to date!

Last year, our fundraiser raised over $20,000 and assisted cancer survivors with their travel and medical expenses while taking treatments. Our goal for this event is to raise $25,000. This year’s event will be held at the New College Institute 191 Fayette Street Martinsville, VA 24112 at 3pm on October 21, 2023.
