Thanks to many Caring Forward Campaign donors who have focused their giving
on cancer care—and the cancer patient care fund in particular —Bozeman
Health and Hillcrest Senior Living have been able to expand a vital, compassionate
service. Funded entirely through philanthropy, we have been able to double
the number of Care Cottages available at Hillcrest Senior Living to traveling
patients who, in addition to fighting cancer, often struggle with the
financial burdens that come with their care.
Increasingly, patients at Bozeman Health’s Cancer Center are traveling
long distances to receive the oncology and radiation treatments they need
to heal. Often, these patients need to stay in our community for several
days at a time to accommodate multiple rounds of very difficult, targeted
therapies. We’re grateful to the donors who’ve supported our
cancer programs, our cancer center caseworkers who identified this growing
need and our friends at Hillcrest for being so supportive in making this
additional space available. We’d like to particularly thank Outwest
Furniture for the generous donation of beautiful new furnishings for both cottages.
