Oncology Walk is this Sunday
Waldo County General Hospital’s annual Oncology Walk will be held Sunday, Oct. 21. Registration begins at noon with the walk slated to head out at 1 p.m. Registration is $10 with a t-shirt or $25 with a hooded sweatshirt.
Tickets for the basket raffle are on sale in the hospital’s classroom this week and will be on sale prior to the walk. Tickets are $1 each, 6 for $5 or 15 for $10.
All proceeds go to the Oncology Patient Assistance Fund and Mammography Fund. The Oncology Patient Assistance Fund helps with co-pays for those undergoing treatments. Patients who are in treatment or recovering from treatment often are unable to work or can only work considerably less than normal.
The Mammography Fund helps pay for mammograms and breast biopsies for patients with no insurance or insurance with a high deductible.
The walk is also meant to support cancer patients undergoing treatment; honor patients who have survived cancer; and especially to keep close the memory of those lost to cancer.
