American Legion Riders, Post 12, recently presented a check for $2,733 to Cancer Navigators. The Polk County group hosted a ride to raise the funds.

Cancer Navigators has served more than 100 cancer patients in the past year from Polk County. Two of the Legion Riders’ members received assistance from Cancer Navigators, which included providing medical supplies, transporting patients to doctor’s appointments and helping patients navigate the insurance filing process. “We just wanted to show Cancer Navigators how much we appreciate what they have done for the community,” said Legion Riders Post 12 President David Pinkard.

Staff at Cancer Navigators were very extremely grateful for the donation, which they say allows them to continue to serve patients in the Polk County area. “Many of our patients come from Polk County, and the motorcycle ride allows us to continue our mission of providing valuable services to patients, ensuring that no cancer patient has to journey alone,” said Cancer Navigators Community Outreach Manager Scharla Battle.

Cancer Navigators’ goal is to help patients through the difficult treatment process. The organization provides the following services:

  • Nurses to help educate patients about treatment
  • Support groups and counseling
  • Support services, including transportation to and from treatment, wigs or prostheses, insurance and financial support
