In a ceremony May 18, local volunteers, businesses and donors were recognized by the Kingman Cancer Care Unit for their support and contributions over the past year. "With this help, we will be able to continue to provide assistance to local residents who are fighting cancer," said KCCU governing board member Janet Watson. KCCU provides local transportation to doctors' appointments and treatments, and also gives financial assistance to patients who need travel, food and hotel accommodations, medications or other needs that may occur. Health equipment such as wheelchairs and walkers, as well as personal equipment including wigs and prostheses are also items the group helps provide. Its expenditures for the last several years have averaged $45,000, with nearly all the money kept within the Kingman area. With only one major fundraiser each year during the November Arts and Crafts fair, the KCCU greatly values the support from its volunteers and donors.
