Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?
PRG serves anyone (the vast majority of clients are women) who has recently been diagnosed with breast or gynecological cancer. This includes single women, widows and single mothers, Tri-State transplants and children who have mothers who are bald and sick from taking chemotherapy. PRG serves spouses who can’t afford to take months off from work to drive their wives to treatment.

Through PRG’s signature programs of Simply Fight (SF)™ and No Age No Stage (NANS)™, PRG provided 115,669 meals, 8,410 rides to treatment, 1,136 housecleaning services and over 60 virtual educational and peer support events nationally last year. Within the Tri-State, PRG provided 27,632 meals, 1,190 rides to treatment and 396 housecleaning services (this service was paused at various times throughout the year due to COVID restrictions) to 501 clients and their families. PRG has seen a 33% increase in referrals in 2021.

PRG serves anyone regardless of income; however, the majority of people served falls into the low-income bracket. In 2020, 40% of clients within the Tri-State fell below the federal poverty guidelines. Additionally, 28% of Cincinnati clients identified as food insecure (does not know where their next meal is coming from) and 15% as ride insecure (does not have a reliable mode of transportation). The impact of PRG’s programs is immediate. PRG takes cancer patients to treatments, feeds families and makes sure families can live in a clean environment, all services that have an extremely positive impact on their fight with cancer and recovery. PRG improves the lives of clients by increasing their access to health care and services that support their mental and physical health during their cancer journeys. PRG is the only health and wellness organization in the Tri-State providing all four critical services to cancer patients.
