Support the Gritman Foundation

The Gritman Cancer Care Fund is the best way to donate to cancer care in our region; it allows the Gritman Foundation to support cancer patients in countless ways. This fund supports Bosom Buddies, Light a Candle, cancer-care equipment, helps patients on a need-by-need basis, and much more.

The Gritman Foundation Light a Candle Program helps people in our region who are facing cancer. Designed to ease some of the burdens that come with facing cancer, we can help with services like housekeeping, grocery assistance, massage therapy, gas cards and more.

Early detection saves lives, and regular mammograms are the best way to detect breast cancer early. Bosom Buddies provides free screening mammograms to local women who are unable to pay for the screening on their own. The screening mammograms are available to women who receive their medical care in Latah County. A physician’s referral is required.

No One Fights Alone

We caught up with some past Pink Tea and Pink Cocktail speakers to see where their journeys have taken them. In each testimony, there is a central theme that reminds us that no one fights alone.

We have been fortunate to hear stories from cancer survivors like Maria Horta Vorse and her husband, Chad Vorse. A common theme arose from the survivors who have spoken – no one fights alone, and when a community comes together to support someone battling cancer, special and lifelong bonds are made.
