Virginia Cancer Specialists is working to optimize our limited supply of personal protective equipment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  To procure additional facemasks, we are asking for volunteers in the community to produce homemade facemasks for our medical oncology clinical team, and our immunocompromised cancer patients in need.

Please email our Oncology Liaison for a curbside pickup at email: Tina.Zuccolo@USOncology.com
