Every day, thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but many do not have a way to get there. This task can be especially difficult for individuals living in rural communities that can often be far away from their treatment center. To help meet the needs of these patients the American Cancer Society is designating a Community Transportation Grant Fund in Southern Utah .
Community Transportation Grants are funds awarded by the American Cancer Society to community organizations or health systems to help cancer patients with transportation barriers get to and from cancer-related treatment appointments.
The funds raised through the efforts of Skywest Airlines and our employees will directly help residents of Southern Utah and those traveling here for treatment gain access to much needed transportation assistance.
