MARLBOROUGH – Marlborough-based public charity Cancer1Source will receive a $100,000 grant from the Cummings Foundation, Mayor Arthur Vigeant has announced.

Cancer1Source was created by oncology nurses in 2009 to provide access to products and services that help fill gaps in patient care. The charity has been an advocate for cancer patients and their families, providing families with financial assistance and access to patient assistance programs. The group also funds cancer research.

“Nurses make a difference in patient care, and [Mary Lou Woodford] and [Karleen Habin] are well aware of the impact and address a need outside of the regular care provided by nurses,” Vigeant said in a press release.

The grant received by Cancer1Source is one of 25 grants over 10 years awarded by the Woburn-based Cummings Foundation this year. To date, the foundation has awarded more than $375 million to nonprofit organizations in Greater Boston.
