Making a Difference One Application at a Time


Dance for the Cure is thrilled to feature Marcia Moore, an inspiring volunteer who has been making a difference at the Steeplechase Cancer Center for over a decade. As a breast cancer survivor, Marcia has been actively involved in planning special events, serving as a wish manager, and helping patients apply for financial assistance through Dance for the Cure's program. Her unwavering dedication to supporting cancer patients has been a source of hope and inspiration, and we are excited to highlight her story in this blog post.


A Volunteer's Story of Giving Back


"Volunteering has been a way for me to give back and help others who are going through similar struggles," says Marcia Moore, who first became involved with the Steeplechase Cancer Center 11 years ago after her own battle with breast cancer. As a wish manager, Marcia planned special experiences like Broadway plays and weekend getaways for adults with cancer, creating memories during difficult times. She also helped the Steeplechase Cancer Center Social Workers with planning special events, including the annual Holiday party and Bloomingdales Breakfast.


When Marcia was introduced to Dance for the Cure six years ago, she jumped at the opportunity to get involved. "I love that all the money they raise goes directly to the patients," she says. "I've helped over 100 cancer patients through Dance for the Cure's financial assistance program and always meet with new Social Workers to tell them about this wonderful program for breast cancer patients."


For Marcia, the personal connections she makes with cancer patients are what make her volunteer work so meaningful. "I really enjoy connecting with the patients and understanding what they're going through," she explains. "It's an honor to play a small role in such an amazing organization."


Marcia's dedication to Dance for the Cure and the patients they support has not gone unnoticed. "Marcia's unwavering commitment to helping cancer patients in need is truly remarkable," says Kathleen Cirioli, Co-Founder of Dance for the Cure. "We are grateful for her tireless efforts and the impact she has made on the lives of those affected by cancer."


Marcia Moore is a shining example of the impact that a dedicated volunteer can make in the fight against cancer. Her compassion, empathy, and passion for helping others are truly inspiring, and we are honored to have her as a part of the Dance for the Cure community.
