Connecting to Cancer Care

 

People living in rural areas are often disadvantaged when it come s to accessing health care. In addition to the physical and emotional aspects of cancer, patients with this diagnosis often face the additional challenge of getting to treatment and appointments.

YCCAC’s Connecting to Cancer Care program makes it possible for York County’s residents seeking cancer care to get to radiation, chemotherapy, oncology visits and other treatment as often as required by means of no-cost, reliable transportation.
