At the beginning of this year’s Rally for Cancer Care at Muskeg Meadows in Wrangell, balloons were released with the names of those fighting cancer or those who have passed on. This year 45 women from Petersburg and two from Ketchikan swelled the total participants to 83 women. Over $6000 was raised to support the Wrangell Medical Center Foundation’s Cancer Care program to provide grants to residents of SE Alaska who must travel away from home for cancer treatment.
