Making a Difference
No one in Gunnison County has to face cancer alone
Living Journeys strives to reach 100% of Gunnison County residents diagnosed with cancer. Thanks to support from our community, we were able to serve more people in 2021 than we had in 2017, 2018, and 2019, combined.
GRANT MONIES DISPERSED IN 2022
Living Journeys gives cash grants directly to cancer patients and their families to help with living expenses and medical bills. Our transportation fund is separately available to reimburse those who have to travel for treatment.
FOOD DELIVERIES IN 2022
Every week, Living Journeys provides healthy, homemade meals to our clients who are in the thick of treatment or need support while recovering. We also provide produce boxes to clients when they are seasonally available.
PRIVATE THERAPY SESSIONS
Since 2017, Living Journeys has subsidized over 1000 private emotional therapy sessions for cancer patients, their caretakers, and their families.
Support Groups & Private Therapy
The need for support groups within the valley has grown, and Living Journeys has grown with it. We now offer monthly support groups for cancer patients, as well as for caregivers and the bereaved which are open to all Gunnison County residents, not just those affected by cancer.
Grants for one-on-one counseling, otherwise known as private therapy, are available to all Gunnison County residents affected by cancer, including family members and caretakers.
Financial & Transportation Assistance
Living Journeys provides financial assistance to help offset the costs that can accompany a cancer diagnosis.
Clients can apply for quarterly cash grants, as well as reimbursements of transportation expenses for travel required for treatment or follow up appointments.
We’re also able to offer assistance for clients who need help getting to or from treatments or follow-ups. Our robust list of local volunteer drivers has helped facilitate getting patients to and from countless appointments.
