Meadville Medical Center Foundation

Specific Need

Every year the Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Institute delivers around 45,000 treatments to patients from 97 zip codes.  Of those treatments, 5,000 patients are receiving radiation treatments.


Your gift to the "Accelerating Hope" campaign will help towards the purchase of a linear accelerator as well as constructing a vault to house the new equipment.  A linear accelerator provides radiation treatments by customizing high energy x-rays or electrons to conform to a tumor's shape and destroying cancer cells; all while sparing the normal surrounding tissue.  This upgrade comes at a cost of approximately $3 million.  

The lifespan on the parts of a linear accelerator is typically ten years.  We are now at the point it is necessary to replace our equipment and provide a smooth transition for patients of the Yolanda Barco Oncology Institute.

Gifts will also help to establish a $1 million endowment to support patient's needs.  A patient may need assistance with transportation costs, medications that are not covered by insurance or perhaps, patients cannot work while undergoing treatments.  Your support will help with all of these situations.

No gift is too small.  Unfortunately, we have all been affected by cancer one way or another.  By contributing, you are helping your community, neighbors, family and friends.  Please consider a gift to Crawford Gives for the Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Institute.
