Your Gift Can Make a Difference…

The Karmanos Cancer Institute Inpatient Oncology Unit at McLaren Oakland

McLaren Oakland plans to open a new inpatient oncology unit. Oakland County residents will benefit from the latest advances in cancer care treatments and receive greater access to advanced clinical trials and cancer treatment programs close to home.

The McLaren Oakland Mobile Clinic

The proposed mobile clinic will provide healthcare and screenings to low income, under-insured and un-insured residents of Oakland County. Screenings to be offered: Blood pressure, blood glucose (diabetes), lipids, osteoporosis, and cancer. It will also serve as a hands-on teaching platform for McLaren Oakland Medical Residents, nurses and other healthcare professionals. The mobile unit will be the first one in Oakland County and serve as a doctor’s office on wheels.

Cancer Resource Fund

During cancer treatment, income may change, leaving the survivor and their families unable to pay for everyday needs, like rent/mortgage, car insurance/maintenance, or utility bills. The Cancer Resource Fund is used to pay for non-medical bills for patients who are undergoing cancer treatment through the Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Oakland, Clarkston or Bloomfield.

Breast Cancer Screenings and Patient Care

We want to increase awareness of breast cancer and provide Karmanos/McLaren Oakland patients in Oakland County with mammograms at no cost to them. Over the past 8 years, the McLaren Oakland Foundation provided more than 4,000 free mammograms to uninsured and under-insured women.

Children’s Clinic and Healthcare

The Children’s Clinic serves children ages 18 and under who reside in Oakland County and do not have health insurance. These children and their parents will benefit by having access to health care services despite their ability to pay. This will decrease the number of children who do not receive necessary medical treatment.

Your gift is critical to our mission to provide McLaren Oakland with the resources to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, race and financial status has access to state-of-the-art health care services in Oakland County.
