Donations have local impact.
Almost everyone has been impacted by the effects of cancer—personally, or by a loved one. And as you know, cancer not only affects your health, it also challenges your finances. For some, it’s time away from work. And even though Alomere Health is the closest option for rural Minnesotans, travel expenses can be an unexpected burden.
To meet this need, the American Cancer Society and Alomere Health collaborate to raise funds each year with their popular Relay for Life events.
Those fundraising efforts have a local impact. Working with ACS’s area representative, Alomere’s Medical Oncology Department requested and received two grants (worth a combined $15,000) that will be distributed to cancer patients with the greatest need.
The Alomere Foundation is another partner in supporting patients during a vulnerable time. Donations to the foundation can be earmarked for the Cancer Center, which enables a patient to pick out a wig during their treatment—at no charge to them.
