“Helping families who are facing cancer has always been a cause that is near and dear to my heart,” McBride said. “I’m honored to be the voice that connects these individuals and their families with a fully committed team of cancer experts. Together with Sarah Cannon, this means each person can fight cancer where they get their greatest strength, in their own communities, with their own band of support.”

The campaign will begin its focus with people fighting blood cancer, which the campaign announcement calls “an underserved patient population requiring convenient access to cutting-edge treatment options in their communities.”
