Seaboard Marine once again participated in the annual telethon held earlier this month to benefit Liga Contra El Cancer (the League Against Cancer). Founded in Miami in 1975 as a community based, non-profit organization, the Liga Contra El Cancer organization has provided free medical care to needy cancer patients for over four decades. More than 350 Florida physicians, who are board-certified in their specialties, volunteer their services to the League Against Cancer. In the organization’s history, more than 50,000 low-income, uninsured men, women, and children have received world-class medical treatment, screenings, and support. Patients receive the appropriate medical treatments at no cost to them.
Seaboard Marine’s President Edward Gonzalez said, “Seaboard Marine has been a long-time supporter of the Liga Contra el Cancer, a wonderful organization, and we applaud their outstanding work. This South Florida organization, dedicated to our community, is so often able to turn sadness into opportunity. The League accepts patients, children or adults, without distinction of race, creed or nationality. Seaboard Marine is proud to be again involved with the fundraising efforts of Liga Contra el Cancer and we thank them for their incredible contributions to the Greater Miami community.”
