BORLAND GROOVER FOUNDATION
The Borland Groover Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to helping the community through education, awareness, prevention, and screenings. In 2008, the Borland Groover Foundation was established with a mission of reducing colorectal cancer and related deaths through increasing public awareness and education, and contribute to the fight against this preventable, yet often fatal disease.
What MTGS brings to the community:
· Raises awareness for colorectal cancer – Did you know, 45 is the new 50?
· Provides colon screenings to patients who may not have the financial means to have one – We provide vouchers to our medical partners, allowing these patients to get screened!
· Provides financial assistance to patients newly diagnosed with colon cancer who meet poverty guidelines – We’ve reimbursed medical expenses for over 25 newly diagnosed cancer patients with the funds raised, because of YOU!
· Educational lectures are held throughout the year offering our medical professionals’ opportunities to learn about gastroenterology education designed to bring novel and relevant subspecialty advancements to the Greater Jacksonville region, they can also earn necessary credits to maintain their licenses.
We promise to continue:
To RAISE awareness to colon cancer and the importance of getting screened!
To INCREASE awareness of colon cancer factors and symptoms to look for
To REDUCE the colon cancer incidences and mortality rates by providing options to improve screening rates in the underserved and uninsured community.
To EDUCATE our community physicians and the community on updates in digestive health
