Once described “as unique to St. Louis as the Arch”, the Peregrine Society fills a void by providing services and supplies, not typically covered by insurance, to cancer patients residing in St. Louis city or county and by assisting uninsured or under-insured patients with services critical to their care.
In 2012, the Peregrine Society added 893 new patients to bring the total number of cancer patients served to over 2,300. All services are provided free of charge. (Click here to view service programs and forms).
The Society is funded solely through private donations. Funds are raised locally and spent locally. Eighty-six cents of each dollar donated benefits our service programs. The St. Louis Peregrine Society is a 501(C)(3). Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
March 9, 2013 was our 5th Annual Trivia Night with proceeds benefitting our service programs to area cancer patients. We had 31 teams of 8 participate and there were over 70 items on our Silent Auction table.
We would like to thank IBEW Local 1, Grand Sponsor of the event; Anheusuer-Busch for their donation; Laclede Cab and St. Louis University Hospital Cancer Center, Gold Sponsors: Peoples’ National Bank, Silver Sponsor; and Round Sponsors: Vandalia Bus Lines, Comprehensive Cancer Care; Southern Commercial Bank; Barry & Mary Hart-Burton; Independent Brokers Agency; Cruises & Tours By Gloria; Alderman Fred Wessels; Missouri State Rep. Jake Hummel; Overland Medicine Shoppe; Winkelmann Drug Co.
Thanks to all who participated by reserving a table; making a donation of cash or an item for the Silent Auction; or volunteering your time. With your help, we raised nearly $12,000 for our service programs.
