TCRHCC Priority for Cancer Treatment– Going the Distance: For Life

When our patients learn that no hospital in the area offers comprehensive cancer care, we know they need to go great distance.

For our patients in the nation's vast rural areas, a cancer diagnosis can be especially frightening because the illness often requires frequent, lengthy and debilitating treatment, making travel to receive therapy an added stress at an already difficult time.

Our patients often travel long distances for their cancer care, with potential associated burdens of time, cost, and discomfort.

Such services nearby would ease their burden. But for now our patients continue to prepare to leave the Navajo Nation for cancer care.
