Proceeds benefit Suburban Hospital’s patient navigator program, which helps patients and family members obtain the information, knowledge, support and guidance needed to help manage complex cancer diagnoses and treatment. Saks Fifth Avenue also donates the proceeds from sales of the KTTC T-shirt sales to their beneficiary charities.
