North Shore Travel Fund for Cancer Patients

$200 Travel support is  available for any cancer patient in Cook County. If you have a cancer diagnosis, print out a voucher by clicking below, or pick one up at Sawtooth Mountain Clinic. Fill out the simple form, and get it signed by a doctor or nurse to verify. Drop off the voucher at the North Shore Health Care Foundation office in the lower level of the clinic, or mail it to PO Box 454, GM, MN 55604.  We will mail a check in a few days.

In 2007 the staff at 1010 Interiors decided they wanted to do something to help the alarming number of local women being diagnosed with various cancers. A special fund was set up specifically to reimburse a small part of the expenses incurred by people with cancer who have to travel for treatment. The second annual Tour of Homes was September 27, 2008 in and around Grand Marais. 1010 Interiors invited the public to see three homes that showed off the work of local contractors and designers.  In 2009, seven local people benefited from this program. They were all very gratified to feel the support of the community at such a difficult time.

Studio 61 Salon held their first annual “Cut for the Cure” on October 9th, 2008.  Everyone was invited to come in for a haircut, enjoy special treats, and receive a gift bag with lots of prizes and gift certificates from many local businesses.  All the donations are going to the foundation to provide more and larger vouchers for cancer patients in Cook County. Andrea did thirty-one haircuts in one day, and many more clients could not get in!

Many other donations have supported this fund, including the Grand Marais Garden Club, the West End Garden Club and Last Chance Gallery in Lutsen.

Thank You So Much!
