On Friday, May 12, 2017 Drs. Thakkar and McCammon participated in the York County Relay for Life with staff members of the Rock Hill Radiation Therapy Center.  Relay for Life is a community based, team fundraising event, supporting the American Cancer Society.  The 2017 Relay was held at the Springfield Middle School gymnasium in Fort Mill, SC and approximately 150-200 people attended the event.  The York County East Relay was able to help 300 people in the York/Rock Hill area through the 2016 Relay for Life funds raised.  These individuals received patient services such as:  free wigs, lodging and assistance from patient service navigators.  Funds also went to help with research funding, with the American Cancer Society’s goal, as a whole throughout the country, to double the research budget to $1 billion by 2021.
