About Our Foundation
Caregiver assistance and In-Home Care
The two main programs at our foundation are the gas cards and taxi cab rides, which help patients get to/from the doctor for appointments and treatment. Many cancer patients have a hard time either finding a ride to their appointments, or cannot afford to pay for the gas it requires to get there. We provide gas cards or we provide cab rides to/from medical appointments. Last year alone we sent out gas cards to over 300 people and provided cab rides to over 100 people! This year we are hoping to increase that number, but we need your help to do it. Please consider donating to our foundation so we can continue to help cancer patients get to their medical appointments!
Help Those Who Need It Most
The Thomas & McMahan Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for New Orleans area cancer patients and their families throughout their cancer experience. Our customized patient programs and services allow patients to regain control of their lives during difficult times. We provide many services that are not covered by traditional means or health insurance.
The Foundation is supported through corporate sponsorships, individual gifts and bequests, and annual fundraisers. We have received grants from the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the Louisiana Breast Cancer Task Force, the St. Tammany Cancer Fund, and other local and national organizations.
Many worthwhile organizations are striving to find a cure for this insidious disease, and to otherwise assist in the fight. The Foundation is unique, as we strive to impact individual patients in our own community in small but meaningful ways.
