Who is the BGC Foundation?

Over the years, the Borland-Groover Clinic has seen the life changing effects that a digestive disease has on a person and their family. Because of the overwhelming need for education and research to fight these illnesses, both in the patient and physician community, the Borland-Groover Foundation was founded. Founded in 2004, exclusively for charitable, educational, medical and scientific purposes.
It's our goal to save lives by preventing colon cancer through community education and research!
