Giving Hearts for Roger Maris

This Giving Hearts Day, when you choose Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center, your gift will support our Cancer Survivorship Program.

This special program offers support groups, cancer retreats, a cancer rehabilitation program and so much more. It has been an important part of Josh Sanborn’s cancer journey.

At just 28, Sanborn was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Since then, he has relied on the experts at Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center for treatment and has built strong relationships through the Cancer Survivorship Program.
