As a friend of Missouri Baptist Medical Center, you know that we place a premium on delivering compassionate care to our patients. It takes many caring donors to make it possible.
Today, we hope you'll consider partnering with a special group of MoBap donors called Champions For Care. Each year, the Champions designate their giving to a group fundraising project that will elevate the quality of patient care.
Who is a Champion For Care?
A Champion For Care is a MoBap donor who commits to a specific giving level, either outright or on a giving schedule, that helps to improve patient care each year. Champions may choose from four giving levels and time their donations to fit their preference.

2020 Project Goal
Lung cancer takes a devastating toll in society. Each year, more deaths occur from lung cancer than colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. Screening people with high-risk provides the best chance for treatment. In fact, since 2014, Missouri Baptist has screened more than 2,300 patients, detecting more than 85 total cancers.
To help reach even more people, the Champions are raising funds to support a second Lung Cancer Navigator for our growing screening program and to underwrite screening for people unable to pay.
The Lung Cancer Navigator is a dedicated nurse who educates physicians and patients about screening guidelines, works with patients and families to schedule appointments, answers questions, and guides them through the entire cancer treatment journey if cancer is found.
