About the Walks for Cancer
Each year, the ProHealth Care Foundation organizes the Walks for Cancer to bring people together in support of cancer services at ProHealth Care. Funds raised at the Walks have a profound impact on cancer patients and their families. The funds are used for clinical research trials, lifesaving equipment and technology, oncology nurse navigators and other needed services.
