CAN Cancer is 社区 Assistance for Neighbors with Cancer. It is a local funding program that provides community assistance to help cover non-medical expenses for Harney County residents fighting any form of cancer. The program was established by Gil, Corinne and Stu Martinez of Wilderness Garbage in cooperation with 所有 the Central Oregon Garbage Haulers.
One hundred percent of 所有 the money contributed is deposited into the CAN Cancer fund at Harney District Hospital and goes directly toward local residents fighting cancer. This fund assists in paying for non-medical expenses that insurance or other programs don’t cover, such as gas and lodging. The only eligibility requirements are that you have cancer, live in Harney County and plan to receive cancer treatment.
Cancer diagnosis can be a financial and emotional strain. Survivors agree that fighting the disease requires every ounce of their emotional and physical strength. Any financial assistance we can provide will lessen their burden. CAN Cancer relies on support from our local community to give our neighbors a fighting chance. Donations can be made to the CAN Cancer fund at Harney District Hospital using this donation form. Also, throughout the year, please watch for our donation can, and events that benefit CAN Cancer. For upcoming events, please check our event calendar.
