Some of our patients are financially challenged and frequently can’t purchase Ensure (liquid nutrition) because of the high cost.
Liquid nutrition helps cancer patients maintain weight during and after treatment and acts as one source of nourishment once side effects occur. Monetary donations are needed so we can supply Ensure to them free of charge. We purchase Ensure from and partner with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. A typical cancer patient needs 2-4 cases a month of Ensure. The Cancer Caring Center currently offers one case of Ensure per patient each month AND WE ARE CURRENTLY THE ONLY PITTSBURGH AGENCY that provides this program for cancer patients. As a monthly donor, your contribution will help give our patients the nutrition they need to battle the day-to-day dietary challenges they face.
Donors are members of the Ensure Bank!
