Amarillo, Texas - A cancer foundation in Amarillo is breaking new ground... Helping patients in a way that's never been done in the Panhandle region. 

It's called the Panhandle Cancer Cure Foundation... What makes it different is help is provided to all cancer patients, regardless of what kind of cancer you have. 

As opposed to many of the local chapters of national organizations that specialize in certain cancers only. Also, all the money raised here stays local... And it's available to the patients the same day they need it.

The foundation's Jennifer Campos says, "we try to help them with gas and hotels. Because the area we serve is not just Amarillo and Canyon. It's 26 counties and sometimes they have to drive here for the day or even for a few weeks. Gas is expensive, some people are on fixed incomes." 

Foundation members also help patients get involved with some of those national organizations like Susan G. Komen, in hopes they can assist them in the future.

If you need help from the Panhandle Cancer Cure Foundation, you can call 358-8654.
