Message from our Chairman
From now until the end of August, IBC Bank will spearhead efforts to raise money to support cancer research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
We have all been affected by cancer, whether personally or through a family member, friend, co-worker or resident of our community. In 2015, it was estimated that more than 46,000 Texans and Oklahomans died from cancer and that 132,000 will be stricken with a form of the disease in the next year. Unfortunately, cancer is not going away.
MD Anderson is among the world’s most respected cancer centers devoted exclusively to patient care, research, education and prevention. Since 1944, over one million patients have turned to MD Anderson for cancer care and, as of 2015, the hospital has provided more than $186 million in uncompensated care to underinsured and uninsured Texans and Oklahomans, along with deserving patients from all over the world. This institution truly belongs to the people.
As IBC Bank celebrates its 50th anniversary and MD Anderson celebrates its 75th, we are thankful for many things. We must continue to “Do More” by giving back to our communities and worthy organizations like MD Anderson. IBC Bank, as well as myself, have supported MD Anderson for many years, and we are delighted to ask all of our customers to become supporters of the number one cancer center in America, in fact, the world.
Between June 15 and August 31, we make it easier for our bank customers to make donations at all 206 locations. In an effort to show our commitment to the cause, IBC Bank will match all donations, dollar-for-dollar.
Please join me and the IBC Bank family as we contribute to cancer research. Cancer will ultimately impact all of our families and communities. Together, we can make a difference.
