San Juan County Health and Community Services has received funding from the American Cancer Society for transportation assistance for San Juan County residents receiving cancer treatment on the mainland.
The emotional and economic toll that cancer takes on individuals and families is enormous. Bearing the cost of off-island transportation adds to an already daunting series of tasks facing local cancer patients as they proceed with treatment. It is fortunate that organizations such as the American Cancer Society recognize the need for support with this issue and provide assistance.
