Cancer Center Fund
Cancer touches us all. In Ashtabula County, we see higher rates of cancer occurrence here than both the state and national averages. Not only do cancer patients have immense challenges physically, their challenges are also emotional and oftentimes financial. Having quality cancer services available right here, close to home, means so much. Donors who direct their gifts to support ACMC's cancer services truly touch the lives of hundreds of their neighbors, friends, co-workers and family. Funds help support cancer care through all aspects of the program, including equipment, facilities, care programs and education.
