Lance Armstrong Visits San Francisco Hospital
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and Lance made a surprise visit yesterday to the San Francisco General Hospital’s Avon Comprehensive Breast Care Center. Together they toured the infusion center, where patients were receiving treatment, and a portion of the oncology center. They also met with hospital doctors to discuss the Hispanic/Latino cancer burden and the need for programs and resources that are tailored to address their needs.
“There is a great need for resources that improve the quality of life for Hispanic and Latino cancer survivors and San Francisco’s community groups and medical professionals are working to fill that need,” said Lance. “LIVESTRONG is proud to be a part of the effort to provide Hispanic families affected by cancer with customized tools and support they need to live life on their own terms.”
