Providing free medical care to cancer patients who can't afford it

A cancer diagnosis is a daunting thing to face.  Aside from the obvious physical and emotional tolls of the disease, there is a heavy and rising financial cost.  Today's guests are working to alleviate these costs for some of our Arlington neighbors.  Doctors Patricia Rodriguez and Neelima Denduluri work with Virginia Cancer Specialists, the recipient of the Governor's 2016 Volunteerism and Community Service Award for Small Business for their work with cancer patients at the Arlington Free Clinic.  The practice was honored in recognition of the care it has provided for 160 low-income, uninsured patients who most likely would not have received treatment without the compassion of its doctors.

It’s our responsibility to give back to the community.

An uplifting example of the type of people served by the Arlington Free Clinic and Virginia Cancer Specialists.
