March 19, 2014 – Yuma, AZ- The Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center recently awarded $97,910 to local cancer programs through the McDaniel Endowment Fund, a fund established by the late Richard Michael McDaniel to enhance cancer treatment in Yuma County. The funds will be used by local organizations to improve all aspects of cancer care, including prevention, health professional training, and access to services.

The funds will support programs and services at three local organizations as well as a Fellowship for an incoming Oncologist currently studying at the Mayo Clinic. The Yuma Regional Cancer Center will utilize the funds to support a High Risk Breast Cancer Clinic, as well as to enhance staff training and certification. Local organizations including Bridget's Gift and the Yuma Coalition for Awareness will use the funds to provide patient support and preventive services for low-income individuals in Yuma County.

The McDaniel Endowment Fund was established by the late Richard Michael McDaniel in 2012. Through his estate, Mr. McDaniel left a generous legacy to be used to further cancer treatment and research in Yuma, Arizona.

The mission of the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center is to support a healthy community through philanthropy. Qualified as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, the Foundation relies on donations to support community programs such as healthcare scholarships and the Drive for School Supplies.
