"The changing landscape of healthcare coverage has left many people anxious and at risk," said Mary Lee Gannon, president. "If you have cancer we don't want you to worry about transportation to your chemotherapy. We have four shuttles to help." The Foundation's board of directors is dedicated to the organization's motto of 'Filling in the gaps with hope' "In a flash your health can turn into the biggest challenge of your life," said Ms. Gannon. "Our donors have answered the call of their neighbors in their hour of need. "
