About Geweke's Caring For Women Foundation
To financially assist women in the Yuba-Sutter community who are battling female forms of cancer such as breast, ovarian, cervical, uterine or endometrial cancer. By relieving the financial burden of not being able to pay their day to day bills that they may be struggling with due to lack of work during treatment, we feel that we can provide a small sense of relief during such a difficult time in a woman’s life.
The Geweke’s Caring for Women Foundation has assisted over 370 women since 2006 with up to $2,000 in financial help. Thanks to your financial fundraising support, we have also been instrumental in the purchase of multiple pieces of imaging equipment for our local medical partners including 3D Mammography units. In addition, we are excited to share that the Rideout Health Cancer Center will begin offering a shuttle service for patients going through treatment thanks to the donation of a new 10 passenger Transit Shuttle van through the foundation. This will assist those who do not have the proper transportation or support to get them to their very important medical treatments.
