will go to support the non-profit's mission to support cancer patients as well
as raise awareness on screenings and healthy lifestyle.

our services here at Guam Cancer Care. We offer patient navigation we offer
financial assistance we also offer our new programs which are cancer screening

helping all the cancer patients on island."
