A Different Kind of Battle: War Veteran Learns How to Talk and Swallow Again After Cancer
September 15, 2022
Every year over 2,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in Yakima County, they are our neighbors, friends, and family members. This is why we are passionate about providing support to those who are facing one of the toughest battles, so they can focus on getting healthy and not have to worry about every little detail. Through the generosity of donors, cancer patients have had access to care and support throughout every stage of diagnoses.
I always felt we had a team protecting us.
