LAS VEGAS, NV. (MARCH 02, 2017) – – Dr. Paul Lanfranchi and his private practice, The Lanfranchi Center for Facial Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation, has generously committed to helping more cancer patients get to their life-saving treatments. This program is known as “TLC Lift For Life” and is a proud supporter of the American Cancer Society and complements their Road To Recovery transportation program.
“We are honored to be able to continue to work with the American Cancer Society and give back to the Las Vegas community in such a life-giving way,” says Dr. Lanfranchi. “On a continual basis, for every TLC Lift we perform here at TLC, we will be donating $100 to this amazing program. That amounts to thousands of dollars per month.”
When Road To Recovery volunteers are unable to fulfill a ride request, TLC Lift For Life provides free taxi transportation for patients to and from their cancer care appointments. TLC Lift For Life will provide service for 35% of the currently unmet patient rides requested in Las Vegas. To request transportation, call 1-888-227-6333.
The Lanfranchi Center has also supported The American Cancer Society by accepting new wigs, scarves, and hats on behalf of the Society’s Cancer Resource Center. They also participate in the Look Good Feel Better program where volunteer beauty professionals share beauty tips with female cancer patients who are currently going through chemotherapy and radiation treatments. In efforts to uplift these women, this hands-on, two-hour workshop provides workshop services surrounding makeup, skin care, nail care and ways to deal with hair loss such as with wigs, hats, and scarves.
