As we begin a new year, we would like to personally thank you for supporting the George Edgecomb Society (GES). Because of your generosity, we continue to move the needle in reducing cancer health disparities and are closer to creating a future where everyone receives the best outcomes. This progress is largely due to the time, resources and dedication you put into the GES.

We also put a spotlight on Moffitt Cancer Center’s new mentorship program, which provides minority and underrepresented students with the opportunity to learn more about health care and fuel their passion for the medical field. Moffitt has provided needed funding to help support this program. Read Story
