Seaboard Marine was once again one of the primary sponsors in the annual telethon held yesterday to benefit the Liga Contra el Cancer (League Against Cancer). Founded in Miami in 1975 as a community based, non-profit organization, the Liga Contra El Cancer has provided free medical care to needy cancer patients for nearly four decades. More than 350 Florida physicians, who are board-certified in their specialties, volunteer their services to the League Against Cancer (“the League”). 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 from the League Against Cancer. 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. Many of our employees and their families have unfortunately been impacted by cancer and they are aware of the outstanding work done by the League. Dedicated to our community, this South Florida organization 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 again be involved with the fundraising efforts of the Liga Contra el Cancer and applauds them for their tremendous work.”
