Donations sought to help cancer patients


Holy Cross Hospital is inviting Taos County residents to think pink through October and donate to support Cancer Support Services.

The independently funded service of Holy Cross Hospital provides cancer patients help with lodging, transportation, personal care, yoga, house cleaning and navigating health care. People can donate a variety of ways through activities at area fitness clubs and restaurants that are donating a portion of their proceeds. Holy Cross Hospital will also accept donations online and via mail.

Each year, CSS presents a few main events, and community partners offer additional events during the fundraising window to “give back” to the program. “Together we create a strong ‘palette’ of options for public supporters of CSS to give to the program while also participating in community action and showing their support publicly,” according to a statement from the hospital. To learn more, volunteer or donate, call (575) 751-8927.

To make a gift by check, mail it to: Taos Health Systems, Inc., Gift Office, 1397 Weimer Road, Taos, NM 87571.
