Who We Support
•Cancer Survivor Programs
Lambie’s Legacy is a 501(c)(3) corporation. We continue to invest a majority of all donations in Lambie’s Legacy: The Margaret Lamb Guyton Stout Fund of the Toledo Community Foundation where grant requests are funded. All contributions made to Lambie’s Legacy are 100% tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Members of Lambie’s Legacy continue to reach out to the community in an effort to collaborate with organizations in furtherance of our mission.
Here are some highlights of how Lambie’s Legacy supports our community in many ways and has distributed grants to many local organizations.
The University of Toledo – Center for Health and Successful Living
The UT Center for Health and Successful Living provides free health and wellness services, education and support for survivors of cancer. In addition the Center is providing free screening days for people in the community who do not have resources available to them by offering free mobile mammograms and breast examinations to the most despaired populations throughout our local community. Because the University of Toledo’s passionate doctors, professors and student interns, volunteer their time for this program, it has limited operating expenses.
We are proud to collaborate with this team bringing the Lambogram program to the streets!
Susan G. Komen – Northwest Ohio Race for the Cure
Lambie started Team Pretty in Pink (now Team Lambie’s Legacy) more than 7 years ago to gather her friends in support of the cause. As with many of the organizations that Lambie touched, she brought life to this team and made it fun! We continued the tradition every year with a team of over 60 people at the Race for the Cure in downtown Toledo. Since 2010 when Lambie held the first annual Cocktails for the Cure, over $83,000 has been donated to Komen Northwest Ohio in Lambie’s name. Please join our team and contact Lambie’s Legacy if you want a Lambie’s Legacy team T-shirt.
The Victory Center
The Victory Center provides hope and support to cancer patients, survivors, and those closest to them by offering free services that help them cope with the different stages of cancer and survivorship giving them a higher quality of life. Services include massage, reflexology, facials, yoga, counseling and support groups. The Victory Center, where Lambie served as a board member, held a special place in her heart as she saw the compassion and importance of offering comfort to patients during the trying stages of cancer, especially to those who couldn’t otherwise afford these services.
Please contact Lambie’s Legacy if you are interested in a future collaboration.
We proudly continue to partner with ProMedica to provide free mammograms, affectionately called Lambograms, to the uninsured and underinsured in our area. We also supported the campaign to bring breast Tomosynthesis technology to ProMedica. This technology, known as 3D mammography, will change the game in breast cancer screening. It not only accelerates the early detection of breast cancer but also decreases the number of abnormal screens requiring call backs, thus relieving unnecessary anxiety.
