Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare (FSLH) recently received information that unknown subjects are calling area residents soliciting donations on behalf of The Regional Cancer Center. The Regional Cancer Center is NOT currently conducting any telephone fundraisers. Anyone calling on behalf of or claiming to be from the Cancer Center soliciting donations is running a scam.

FSLH would like to remind people not to provide any personal information over the phone or be sure to verify with the organization that they are soliciting funds through a telephone campaign. It is recommended that if you receive one of these calls to hang up and not pursue the phone call any further. If the calls continue please notify your local police agency.

If you have any questions, please call (315) 624-5600.
