Guam - Guam Cancer Care received an
$800,000 grant from the University of Guam and the Guam Cancer Trust Fund. Guam
Cancer Care marketing and program coordinator Charlona Lauron says this money
will go to support the non-profit's mission to support cancer patients as well
as raise awareness on screenings and healthy lifestyle.
"This money actually helps us
continue 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 and by next week we're also going to have the unveiling of our
transportation program," she said. "What this award does is it allows us to
continue the services of helping all the cancer patients on island."
Guam Cancer Care has helped more
than 300 patients since the non-profit's inception more than a year ago.
