Guam - A $20,000 check was presented to the Guam Cancer Foundation today. According to Guam Cancer Center Communications Director Rodney Dolorin, the non-profit organization provides support for patients as well as provides programs for patient navigation, financial assistance, transportation and education.

"A major problem with the gaps are financial gaps and services gaps. Geople sometimes just don't know where to go, they don't know where to go for treatments. We're trying to lead them in the right direction," he said.

According to the Guam Cancer Registry, there are almost 300 new cases of cancer on Guam with over 100 resulting in death. The cancer center provides free services for the local community.
