We've all been personally victimized by cancer and we know the costs that come with that fight. Merle Cancer Care Center at Island Hospital in Anacortes is raising money for their Medical Relief Fund. Their mission is to take some stress away at a very stressful time by meeting a financial need. This program provides $300 to each patient for any medical related costs, such as: medical supplies, medications, uncovered medical bills, transportation/ fuel costs to get to appointments, etc. Patients are made aware of this fund when they meet with staff upon diagnosis. There is no proof of need required! The BEST part??? 100% of proceeds raised during this event go directly to helping cancer patients feel less burdened by the financial stress that comes along with . ONE HUNDRED PERCENT. I'll do the hard work but I could use your monetary encouragement. I would love to accomplish raising enough for at least ONE person's assistance fund. Please help me reach my goal, and/or join my team and walk 10 miles with me!
