Expanded Care Cottage


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.
