What is CAN Cancer?
CAN Cancer was established by Gil, Stu and Corinne Martinez of Wilderness Garbage in cooperation with the Central Oregon Haulers, a group of garbage and trash haulers. The group raises money through its annual CAN Cancer donation program and various other fundraisers. There are no administrative or operating costs, and 100 percent of all funds raised go directly to Central Oregon families of cancer patients. The money is to be used for the non-medical, incidental expenses associated with cancer treatment.
