SANDPOINT — The Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce celebrated Community Cancer Services’ grand re-opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, Jan. 7.

With a move to a new location late last year, CCS officials are celebrating the change and excited to see what the new year will bring.

Founded in 2002 by a group of local citizens, Community Cancer Services, also known as “Heather’s House,” is a non-profit, community-funded, cancer resource center providing current and reliable information and direct support services to cancer patients and their families residing in Bonner and Boundary counties of North Idaho.

Some of the services offered include: Financial assistance for lodging during treatments, insurance co-payments, prescriptions, medical bills, durable and nondurable goods, gas vouchers to help with the cost of fuel during cancer-related travel, individual and family counseling, and even wigs, hats, scarves, and post-mastectomy products. All their services are free of charge and provided without regard to financial need.

They hold two main events during the year to raise funds for these services. Coming up for CCS is their annual Mad Hatter Tea fundraiser on April 13. Later this year, A Night to Remember wine tasting, dinner and auction on Nov. 2.

According to Executive Director Cindy Marx, the “most used and needed service is our gas voucher program that provides gas for people to get to treatment.”

Please join the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce in congratulating Community Cancer Services on their new location and grand re-opening. Chamber officials offered them best wishes them for continued success in the community.
