About The Red Devils

Since 2002, The Red Devils has invested more than $5 million to fund treatment support for nearly 9,000 breast cancer families so that loved ones are able to enter or remain in treatment. The nonprofit has partnerships with 31 hospitals throughout Maryland whose medical staff and social workers refer patients to its business partners for a variety of treatment support services at no charge to anyone with breast cancer living or being treated in Maryland.

 

The Red Devils funds support in three program areas that align with the most common barriers to treatment breast cancer patients encounter. Patients and their families turn to the nonprofit to assist with: treatment transportation, family support and medical costs and treatment-related therapies.
