Almost since the day there was a DoorCancer, Door County Medical Center has been right there with them. Founding DoorCan committee member and hospital social worker Katie Graf gets called into the oncology department weekly with a family just given the news a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer. The discussion goes from treating cancer to immediate needs like groceries and heating bills. Graf says the number of cancer treatments is growing in Door County, but DoorCancer is growing with it.
Volunteers work in the oncology department willing to walk families through the DoorCan application process upon diagnosis.
