HOW YOU CAN HELP
WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO COME TOGETHER TO HELP SOME OF OUR NEIGHBORS
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, there is a sudden and shocking whirlwind of doctor appointments, testing and a rush to begin treatment. Because there are no pediatric hospitals in Montana, a child from the Gallatin Valley will be whisked away for treatment, typically to Children's hospitals in Seattle, Denver or Salt Lake. This necessity to receive treatment so far from home can result in a substantial financial burden for families. There are many costs beyond what insurance will pay for such as loss of work, gas, airline tickets, food, housing etc. With all of the stress and hardship that are an integral part of fighting cancer, it is our desire to meet some of the tangible needs of families in order to ease their burden. We have the opportunity to come together as a community to help some of our neighbors in this unique time of crisis.
The Bozeman 3 works with local pediatricians and family practice doctors to supply valuable materials to families with children newly diagnosed with cancer in order to help them transition to out-of-state hospitals. Families are also provided with the opportunity to apply for both immediate and ongoing financial assistance.
