Cruzin’ for Life’s delivers generous $110,000 donation to Mission Hope Cancer Center

Appeal Banner

A driving force of generosity on the Central Coast, Cruzin’ for Life has once again provided a tremendous gift to local cancer patients. Through the collective efforts of the Cruzin’ for Life board, sponsors, donors, and volunteers, $110,000 was raised at September’s Cruzin’ for Life Car Show and Cruise for Marian Cancer Care at Mission Hope Cancer Center.

Cruzin’ for Life is one of Santa Maria’s most prolific fundraising organizations. Their efforts since 2006 have helped bring $1,312,900 to Mission Hope Cancer Center in Santa Maria. Their continued efforts further Cruzin’ for Life’s well-deserved title as the most significant organizational funder for Mission Hope Cancer Center.

“Ever since Mission Hope Cancer Center opened its doors, the community has shown tremendous support for the healing work in the cancer center,” Robert Dichmann, MD, Medical Director of Marian Cancer Program said. “A cancer diagnosis and subsequent journey often brings tremendous financial burdens for patients, and as a component of the services here, we offer assistance in a variety of ways. Cruzin’ for Life holds a special place in our hearts at the cancer center, because the volunteer-run organization give so much time and effort to make Santa Maria a better place.”

In addition to featuring advanced, lifesaving technology, Mission Hope Cancer Center has a robust offering of support services for patients including free educational lectures, support group, nutrition and exercise classes, and more. With social, health, financial, and emotional support for cancer patients, each individual is equipped to better focus on their treatment plan.

Marian Regional Medical Center is proud of our many team members who are dedicated to providing compassionate care to our patients. They know humankindness is the best medicine and practice it on a daily basis. They are our Guardian Angels.

Patients at Marian recently made a gift in the honor of four team members who made a difference in their lives during their visit or stay by making a donation to the hospital in their name.

Recipients from top to bottom, Chris Lutman, MD, and Yuri Arrellano (Mission Hope Cancer Center); Cardiologist Jason Choi, MD; and OB-GYN Elaine Yin, MD.

On December 3, 2019, we surprised Marian team members who were nominated as part of our inaugural #THANKSGivingTuesday event. Patients and coworkers shared amazing stories of kindness and compassion that brought much joy and many hugs across the campus. 

There were stories of Marian team members who helped facilitate final wishes for patients, stories of colleagues who brighten departments, and stories of those who give to patients in extraordinary ways. We are truly to fortunate to have amazing people who make up the staff at Marian Regional Medical Center.

Thank you for nominating wonderful examples of humankindness.
