MCALLEN, Texas – Throughout the month of July Chick-fil-A restaurants across the Rio Grande Valley held a market wide campaign encouraging residents to purchase Chocolate Chip cookies to fight cancer. Today restaurant owners in the Valley presented a $25,000 check to the Vannie E. Cook Jr. Children’s Cancer and Hematology Clinic.

The clinic is a comprehensive pediatric cancer and hematology treatment center.

Victoria Guerra, Director of Development – Vannie E. Cook Clinic, “Primarily this will pay for chemotherapy for our low-income patients. The mission of the clinic is to never turn away a child regardless of their financial status. If they have insurance, if they don’t have insurance, if they can pay out of pocket, if they can’t pay out of pocket, if your child needs our help, we are going to help them.”

Over the past 18 years the Vannie E. Cook Clinic has recorded more than 86,000 patient visits providing care for nearly 10,000 children.
