The chair of the board of directors of the Yarmouth Hospital Foundation says they fully support the establishment of regional radiation therapy
services at the Yarmouth Regional Hospital.
A grass-roots effort in support of that cause saw the creation of the online-based Yarmouth Cancer Support Network which now has over 7100 members from across Western Nova Scotia.
Currently only chemotherapy is offered at the Dr. Edwin Janke Cancer Centre.
Patients requiring radiation therapy must travel to Halifax or Cape Breton.
