Valdosta -- A south Georgia hospital teams with the Southwest Georgia Cancer Coalition to ease the cost of cancer treatments.
The Lowndes County Partnership for health has established a "Partnership Cancer Fund." The fund will help pay the cost of medication, medical equipment, and transportation to and from medical treatments.
"A lot of times individuals with cancer and their families have unmet needs and expenses that are not covered by insurance," said Diane Fletcher, Executive SWGA Cancer Coalition.
