Cancer Crush

QUINCY — The Quincy Medical Group Foundation recently was the host of the annual Community Cancer Crush, which raised more than $70,000 for the QMG Foundation Oncology Patient Assistance Fund.

Cancer Crush has brought the local community together for nine years in support of area patients battling cancer. The Oncology Patient Assistance Fund provides assistance for patients, helping with everyday living expenses, including transportation, housing and more.

In a press release, QMG Director of Community Relations Morgan Parker said, “We are humbled by the kindness shown by this community. When we are able to tell a patient undergoing cancer treatment that there is help available, our team sees the impact of Cancer Crush first-hand. Your support is so meaningful to those patients and their families.”

Cancer Crush was held at The Ambiance in Quincy. It included a live auction, silent auction,
games, a live band and Buzz Off Cancer. Buzz Off Cancer began in 2018 and features “buzzees” who shave their heads in support of local cancer patients.
