Gift of Life and Total: Saving Lives in Southeast Texas

Thank you, Total!

Thanks to the extraordinary support of Total, nearly 36 medically underserved Southeast Texas women received free clinical breast exams and mammograms from the Gift of Life.

Total is a valued partner in championing the Gift of Life’s mission of saving lives, sponsoring both breast and prostate cancer screenings.

Since 2002, Total has helped underwrite nearly 50 mammography van sites with company support and also through its collaboration with the Miracle Match for Life benefit golf tournament, providing nearly 1,500 free clinical breast exams and mammograms, as well as diagnostic tests, when needed, for medically underserved Southeast Texans, and extending the lives of 12 women who were diagnosed with cancer and given access to treatment.

“I have my mammograms to make sure that I am okay for my children. There are no words that I can say about how thankful I am to Total and Gift of Life for providing the opportunity for me and the other women here today to have mammograms. I am grateful for their help and for caring about the lives of women.”

For nearly 15 years, Total has provided much-needed funding to heighten cancer awareness and reduce healthcare disparities in Southeast Texas through its annual sponsorship of Gift of Life breast and prostate cancer screenings, as well as Survivors Celebration, an event that inspires hope, while exemplifying the courage of individuals who have valiantly battled cancer.

In 2009, Total received the Gift of Life’s prestigious corporate “Spirit of Love” award to recognize its outstanding contributions that have heightened awareness and provided critical healthcare for thousands of medically underserved Southeast Texans.

Gift of Life clients benefit from support services that bridge disparities limiting the deliverance of lifesaving care. From childcare, transportation and translation assistance, each client is individually navigated through the organization’s corridor of compassionate care. Upon the diagnosis of breast cancer, Gift of Life clients are provided a case manager who accompanies them through their healing journey and facilitates services to alleviate the emotional, financial and medical pressures accompanying every cancer diagnosis. Since inception, the Gift of Life has diagnosed nearly 200 medically underserved Southeast Texas women with breast cancer and navigated them into treatment.

Though the charitable support of Total, the Gift of Life can continue providing these essential services to local women in need. The company’s dedication to this cause illuminates its commitment to helping enhance healthcare services for individuals who cannot afford medical care or insurance.
