More than half of the patients who seek treatment at the ARH Cancer Center find themselves desperately wanting to get well, but struggling with how they will get to and from treatment.
The ARH Cancer Center in Hazard Kentucky is a regional option for cancer treatment in Eastern Kentucky. In fact, more than 60 percent of our patients live at least 30 minutes away. Some families travel two hours or more for cancer care.
Finding reliable transportation is a constant challenge for our patients. This is especially difficult when patients need to visit many times a week, or every day. Unfortunately, some of our patients will not finish their treatment because of transportation issues.
Now, thanks to the ARH Cancer Center Patient Assistance Fund, these patients can put their minds to rest and focus only on getting well.
