Dear Mr. Smith,
On behalf of The Seton Fund Board of Trustees and Daughters of Charity, thank you for Austin Wildcats Basketball’s generous gift of $41,133.00 towards the Breast Cancer Center at Seton Medical Center Austin.
As you know, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime - virtually everyone is affected. Our vision is to provide a state-of-the-art center for breast cancer patients and families right here in Austin. It is the intent of the Seton Oncology Program’s Medical Directors for the Seton Breast Cancer Center to be a ‘template of hope’ from which to build a similar multi-disciplinary continuum of care for all forms of cancer treatment. This foundation will allow us to put into place the appropriate clinical infrastructure to become a top cancer center and, most importantly, to allow our community to be able to get the best cancer care available, right here in Austin.
The Seton Fund, in partnership with philanthropic leaders in the community like you, has committed to raising the funds necessary to see this vision become a reality for the many Central Texans and those that love them, whose lives have been or will be impacted by breast cancer. Thank you for sharing our vision. With your help, we are doing great things!
Charles Scarborough Executive Director The Seton Fund
