Gift to Support Levine Cancer Institute, Levine Children’s Hospital
CHARLOTTE, N.C., January 24, 2020 –24 Foundation announced today a $1.75 million commitment to Atrium Health’s Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital. With this gift, 24 Foundation will have donated more than $5.5 million collectively to both facilities to support adult and pediatric cancer survivorship and wellness programs.
“We greatly appreciate our long-standing partnership with 24 Foundation and their dedication to building the Survivorship and Wellness Programs at Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital,” said Armando Chardiet, president of Atrium Health Foundation. “Their generous philanthropic support will help us achieve our vision of implementing services at all points throughout a survivor’s cancer experience with a team of the most highly trained specialists.”
This commitment will support ongoing enhancement of the Institute’s world-class navigation program and continue to sustain and grow existing survivorship and integrative oncology programs such as healing arts, massage therapy, yoga and acupuncture. In addition, a portion of the gift will support the pediatric cancer survivorship program at Levine Children’s Hospital.
As more patients are seeking opportunities to participate in activities that promote mind and body wellness at all points across their cancer experience, philanthropy will continue to play a key role in advancing care for patients and improving their quality of life during and after treatment.
“On behalf of our team of riders, supporters and sponsors, we are proud to have Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital among our primary beneficiaries and to donate funds to these amazing cancer facilities,” said Katy Ryan, executive director of 24 Foundation. “We are deeply committed to funding cancer survivorship and navigation programs. Seeing firsthand the results of our collective gifts and the impact we are making right here in our community is empowering.”
