More than 3,500 individuals, foundations and corporations have made contributions towards the University of Colorado Health Cancer Center. However, as all good things must come to an end; the PVH and MCR Foundation announced that the fundraising campaign will come to a close on December 31st, 2014.
“This achievement – put in terms a Coloradan can really relate to – is as thrilling as nearing the summit of a 14’er.” – Kevin Unger, President and CEO, Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies.
The campaign supported the development of the 30,000 square foot addition that opened in June and provides one-door access to all-inclusive, world-class care for cancer patients. Located on the Harmony campus, the cancer center is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, as well as services to make patients feel as comfortable and emotionally whole as possible during their cancer journey.
Coming Soon: Survivorship and Wellness Center
Additional dollars raised will fund an 8,000 square foot renovation to create the Survivorship and Wellness Center, slated for completion in 2015.
“When the cancer center opened its doors on June 9, we were still working toward phase three in our fundraising – to support the Survivorship and Wellness Center,” explained Erica Siemers, senior director, PVH and MCR Foundation. “We are nearing that goal and expect that end-of-year gifts may carry us over the finish line for this final, vital part of the project.”
“While the cancer center is now open, providing one-door access to leading-edge cancer care, our work is not quite done and we need your help. We are close; but not yet at the campaign’s goal. The Survivorship and Wellness Center, which will provide services like physical therapy, massage therapy, a nutritional counseling and more, needs our continued support. And it can’t be ignored, it’s the part that cancer survivors told us was essential and sets us apart from other care facilities.” – Kevin Unger
“Together we have traveled so far, let’s reach the summit of this 14’er.” – Kevin Unger
