Help for a friend in a time of need | Letters

Many of you know that our beloved CPA, community volunteer and wonderful friend has recently been diagnosed with cancer.

A fund to assist Cathaleen Cavanagh with her “out of pocket” Medical expenses for cancer treatments has been set up at Islanders Bank at 225 Blair, Friday Harbor or the Orcas branch, 475 Fern Street, Eastsound.

Checks should be made out to the “Cathaleen T. Cavanagh Cancer Fund”.  The proceeds from this fund will be used only for the direct medical expenses not covered by insurance.

Any donations that exceed Cathy’s out-of-pocket expenses will be gifted to Peace Island Volunteers to help them continue their mission in assisting our local Peace Island Medical Center patients with their clinic and other medical needs.

The family and many friends of Cathy sincerely appreciate your concerns, good wishes and financial assistance.

Family and friends for the Cathy T. Cavanagh Cancer Fund
