To the editor:
I am writing as a cancer survivor who has had first-hand experience driving many miles to receive treatment.
My children were younger and the winter was difficult. My trips for radiation treatments were hours per day round trip. That's why I am so excited and supportive to see the new cancer center in Marshall get the consideration it deserves from our region.
I have followed the progress closely and have been a donor. The fundraising has gone well, but to get the cancer center built, another $500,000 must be raised by mid-September so groundbreaking can move forward.
If you have not donated yet, please consider giving something - whether large or small, every dollar adds up to reach the goal.
Your contribution is tax deductible and it stays locally for cancer care in our region.
To donate on-line, go to www.averamarshall.org or mail a check to Avera Marshall Foundation Cancer Center, 300 South Bruce Street, Marshall, MN 56258
