About the 2017 Pedaling for Payson Event
This community event attracts over 300 cyclists who help to support Concord Hospital Payson Center for Cancer Care. Monies raised help Payson Center patients with out of pocket expenses associated with supporting their quality of life during cancer treatment. Additionally, funds are used to provide our most vulnerable patients with a nurse navigator. The nurse navigator is a staff member dedicated to helping cancer patients find the medical, community, and financial support they need quickly, which in turn, helps to calm the patient’s anxieties related to their treatment.
The Gene Gillis Fund was established to specifically support out-of-pocket expenses for patients in need at Concord Hospital Payson Center for Cancer Care through gifts of gas, groceries, nutritional supplements and other items to improve quality of life for patients dealing with cancer.
