AIS Cancer Center Receives Large Donation

Philanthropy Today the AIS Cancer Center at San Joaquin Community Hospital (SJCH) was excited to be the recipient of a large donation from Russ Carter, Owner of RJ's Bar and Grill. Carter raised the funds from his annual golf tournament in November.

Carter has chosen to give all the proceeds from future golf tournaments to SJCH. The check presentation was for $10,000. The funds will go toward the AIS Cancer Center at SJCH, which will help with transportation needs for patients along with housing for out-of-town patients who have multiple treatments within a few days.

The AIS Cancer Center offers a comprehensive option for cancer diagnosis and treatment, all under one roof. At SJCH, we believe cancer is best fought on your home turf. That's why SJCH offers academic-based cancer care, so patients don't have to leave Kern County for treatment. For more information about the AIS Cancer Center click here.
