“It felt good to be back after two years. We had 900 people attend the 31st Annual McGregor Music Festival for Cancer. The weather was perfect, and people came out to enjoy the music, raffles and of course the Pig Auction. We say a big thank you to all the bands, sponsors, volunteers, and classic car enthusiasts that come out to make it a super day” said Sue LeClair, Event Chair, McGregor Music Festival.
The Patient Assistance Fund is available for patients for emergency use when all other forms of financial assistance are not available.
The Cancer Program provides radiation treatment to approximately 115 patients each day. While waiting to receive radiation treatment, our patients are provided with Robes for Radiation; high quality robes stored in a warming cabinet. These robes not only provide warmth for radiation patients, but also modesty and comfort over their hospital gowns.
