Pink Out for Cancer Research

 

Help Cancer Fighters in Need at the Stephenson Cancer Center  

The Sooner Stilettos are teaming up with OU Women’s Basketball Coach Sherri Coale and the Stephenson Cancer Center to fight a tough opponent – cancer.  

 

Cancer creates many challenges – physically, emotionally, and financially. Recognizing the breadth of what cancer affects, the Stephenson Cancer Center has financial navigators, nutritional guidance, distress management services, and other supportive care services to help with these challenges.

 

Services like these are only made possible through philanthropic dollars – and we need your help to continue providing resources to Oklahoma cancer fighters.

 

 With your donation, the Stephenson Cancer Center will be able to increase the support we are able to provide patients through lodging and transportation assistance, gas cards, complimentary wigs and headwraps, and even preventative care like mammograms.

 

Every dollar counts. Every donation makes a difference. Join our team and lets #CURECANCERSOONER

$5

Share The Ride

Cancer patients often fight cancer on their own, and basic tasks like driving themselves to treatment become a challenge. Your gift will provide a taxi ride for Oklahoma City-based patients who are in need of transportation to treatment.

$25

People Not Patients

More than 40 percent of patients travel more than 50 miles to get to nationally recognized cancer care at the Stephenson Cancer Center. The cost of gas adds up quickly, and your gift will provide a Gas Card to a cancer fighter in need of assistance.

$50

Hair to Help

Cancer treatment can cause many physical changes such as hair loss. Your gift will provide women battling cancer with the opportunity to receive a wig or head wrap at no cost.

$100

Comfort and Care

Cancer patients and their caregivers are often away from their home for weeks – or even months – at a time. Your gift will provide hotel lodging for a cancer fighter in need of assistance during treatment.

$500

Make It A Priority

Approximately 1 in five Oklahoma women are without health insurance and are unable to receive a routine mammogram. Your gift will provide mammogram services for Oklahoma women while contributing to public health research on how to improve access to care.
