Enhancing Cancer Treatment In Our Own Community
The second goal of the Spierings Cancer Foundation is to enhance cancer treatment in the Fox Cities community. To do this, we work closely with local Cancer Centers to fund the purchase of equipment and services used by the Doctors, Nurses and Medical Technicians to treat cancer patients.
These funds have been used to purchase iPads for patients to use while getting their Chemo treatment; the purchase of a high definition Microscope and telecommunication equipment; the purchase of equipment used to administer and measure levels of radiation; and equipment used to detect and target prostate cancer in men. We have funded massage therapy for cancer patients; anti-nausea medications; and computer software used by the nurse navigators to track the progress of their cancer patients. We have provided funds for Prosthetic Bra of Breast Cancer Survivors and The Livestrong Program at the local YMCA to help cancer survivors regain their strength and stamina lost during treatment.
