Penquis receives grant from Walmart Foundation
BANGOR - Penquis received a grant from the Walmart Foundation that is helping individuals with a cancer diagnosis access their medical treatment. The grant in the amount of $30,000 is helping to fund the Penquis Access to Cancer Care program, which provides transportation assistance to cancer treatment for individuals living in Penobscot and Piscataquis counties. "For individual living in rural areas the financial burden of traveling to treatment is just one of the barriers to getting the care they need," saidd Marcia Larkin, Lynx Mobility Services director, Penquis.
Access to Cancer Care provides reimbursement per mile to individuals who can drive themselves or to family members or friends who are providing transportation. The program also has trained drivers who will pick the individual up at their home and provide the transportation. "Some individuals are without reliable transportation, don't have anyone to take them to their appointments or, in some cases, just don't feel well enough to drive themselves," said Larkin.
