Cancer affects everything in a patient's life emotions, family dynamics, and even a person's ability to keep a job or simply drive to a chemotherapy appointment.

Our compassionate doctors, nurses, and medical staff at the Tate Cancer Center at UM Baltimore Washington Medical Center get to know our patients very well because of the length of their treatment beyond their view of the medical situation. They often get a more intimate glimpse of their patients' lives.

That's why, years ago, UM BWMC medical oncologist and hematologist Dr. Harvinder Singh created the Patient Care & Comfort Fund. We started this fund in our own office, where our staff members would contribute once a month. It allows us to lift small burdens from our patients, and it lets them know how much we care about them," Dr. Singh said.

In the years since then this fund has grown with generous support not only from our own medical community but from the community at large. It is just another example of The Power of· Caring - a power that saves lives and strengthens our resolve to provide the highest quality of care to our family members, our neighbors, and our friends.
