Buccaneers and Florida Cancer Specialists Renew Partnership
Tampa, FL – August 10, 2016……… The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute (FCS) announced that they have renewed their partnership with a multi-year deal.
The work being performed by Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute (FCS) in the research and treatment of cancer is making a real difference in the lives of so many here in the Bay Area and throughout our state,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “The Buccaneers are proud and excited to renew our partnership with Florida Cancer Specialists as they continue in their mission to provide world-class cancer care.”
With over 30 local offices found throughout the Bay Area, including an exceptional state-of-the-art cancer center located next door to the Buccaneers’ training facility at One Buccaneer Place, Florida Cancer Specialists is uniquely situated to join with the team in its mission to provide the most advanced cancer treatments in a setting where patients can be close to home. Buccaneers players are regular attendees at FCS events and dinners, supporting patients and families who are going through treatments. The club also works with FCS during the NFL’s “A Crucial Catch” breast cancer awareness campaign in October.
FCS CEO Brad Prechtl said, “The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been a great partner for FCS in many ways, including having players participate in our patient appreciation events. As a community-based oncology practice, we also are grateful that the Buccaneers get so involved in recognizing and supporting our patients in local communities at special events such as the annual Breast Cancer Awareness Game. We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with this great organization.”
