FREE nutrition education and support that will allow patients to be in the best condition possible to FIGHT cancer.
We are excited to announce that our event proceeds will be dedicated to funding a comprehensive nutrition program at Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center. The program will provide for a full-time Registered Dietitian on staff in the Cancer Center allowing every patient FREE access to education and nutrition support before and during their treatment. Traditional health insurance plans do not fund this type of care for oncology patients, so many patients aren’t seen by a dietitian until they are already facing malnutrition and their treatment plan is compromised. Through our joint efforts with MBP TGMC, we recognize that malnutrition during cancer treatment is a huge problem that needs to be faced with a proactive approach. Our goal is to help patients in the Bayou Region from the beginning, so that their bodies are in the best condition possible to FIGHT cancer.
Roux For A Reason is in honor of Dr. John C. Floyd and Mr. Benard Levy of Houma, Louisiana
