For three years, Central Oregon garbage haulers have joined together to "Can Cancer." The idea is to raise funds to help cancer patients pay for non-medical expenses. Gil and Corinne Martinez started "Can Cancer" when their son was battling throat cancer several years ago. As owners of Wilderness Garbage, they wanted to give back to the community after their son's successful cancer battle. They approached other garbage collectors and got a positive reaction: “So the community has been overwhelmingly support. In 2010 we raised $30,000.” Corinne Martinez says 100% of your donation goes to Central Oregon families to pay day-to-day expenses while receiving cancer treatments. Special envelopes to donate were mailed in this month’s garbage bills.
