The Angels Cancer Care Program has moved!

The Wyoming Foundation for Cancer Care is proud to announce the Angels Cancer Care Program has joined us in our mission to help cancer patients throughout Wyoming. The Angels offer emotional support, financial assistance, transportation, meals and medication retrieval. The Angels Cancer Care Program educates the community about our program while raising much needed funds to support patients currently undergoing treatment. These funds are used for food and gas vouchers, prosthetics, wigs and more. The Angels Cancer Care Program is comprised of over 30 volunteers who are cancer survivors or volunteers that want to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients as they receive treatment. If you would like to volunteer, please click here.

On average, the Angels assist over 100 patients with direct needs i.e. rent/mortgages, utility payments, travel for treatments, groceries, etc.  The Angels reach an average of 500 additional patients through activities at Rocky Mountain Oncology and Masterson Place; these include dinners, special occasion baskets to lift spirits and deliver Thanksgiving meals to patients and their families. Angel volunteers take patients under their wings through our mentoring program and holding patients hands while they go through treatment.   

We are so excited to have such an amazing program and group of volunteers join us as we continue to grow and help more patients.

WY Women's First Program End

CASPER, WY – January 21, 2016 – The Wyoming Foundation for Cancer Care, part of three nonprofits who participated in the WY Women’s First program, would like to announce the program end effective December 31, 2015.

The WY Women’s First program was launched in 2012. One third of Wyoming women never get their mammogram screenings mostly due to long travel distances and cost. The grant funding for the program was made possible through a partnership between Susan G. Komen for the Cure and GE.

The Wyoming Foundation for Cancer Care will honor any existing vouchers until February 1, 2016. The Wyoming Foundation for Cancer Care continues to support cancer patients and their families with non-medical needs. To donate or find out more, visit the website.

A separate program, the Wyoming Breast and Cervical Program, remains an available program for Wyoming residents in need. For more information on the program and to see if you qualify, details are available on their website here.

For questions or concerns regarding the end of the WY Women’s First program, connect with a Susan G Komen Foundation representative at 800-204-1332 or atinfo@komenwyoming.org or call Kara Frizell at Rocky Mountain Oncology at 307-233-4725.
