A letter from Smiles for Massey founder Dr. Chip Anderson:
As a member of the Massey Cancer Center Advisory Board, I am thrilled to announce the beginning of what I hope to be an excellent partnership between the Central Virginia dental community and the VCU Massey Cancer Center.
The Smiles for Massey campaign has been established to raise funds for cancer research, with a portion of the funds raised supporting Oral Cancer research. As you know, we as health care providers are often on the forefront of oral cancer diagnosis, but after that we are often helpless to do much more. With the Smiles for Massey campaign we can join forces with the research community to help find ways to treat and hopefully cure this scourge of our society.
The Smiles for Massey campaign will ask dental practices to donate or pledge funds based on some category that you deem reasonable. My practice is going to be participating by donating $5,000. Our goal is to raise $50,000. I am asking you to join me in this effort by finding a way to share your support of Massey Cancer Center with your patients.
Please join me in pledging your help in raising awareness and funds for the Smiles for Massey campaign. Together we will make a difference!
