Fredericksburg, VA (October 26, 2021) – Mary Washington Healthcare (MWHC) has received an increase in
grant funds by $2,500 for a total of $7,500 from The American Cancer Society.
“We have seen an increasing number of cancer patients needing transportation
for their treatments, and this grant allows us to provide that vital community
resource which ensures patients receive the care they need,” said
Jennifer Reynolds, Director, Oncology and Outpatient Therapeutic Services, MWHC.
Juanita Thompson, Cancer Control Strategic Partnerships Manager, American
Cancer Society says, “Cancer patients undergoing treatment frequently
require assistance getting to and from facilities, often creating a financial
and logistical burden. That’s why the American Cancer Society has
awarded a transportation grant to MWHC. These funds will be used to address
the unmet transportation needs of patients, particularly vulnerable populations
experiencing an unequal burden of cancer in our community.”
