Our goal is to build and sustain free housing that will support patients and their families in North Central Montana.
For many years, there has been a great need in our community for patient housing while receiving outpatient treatment. A patient housing facility has become our top priority.

Lewistown Resident's Battle with Breast Cancer
by Helen Johnson
Dealing with cancer can really take its toll on a person and their family but even more so when you live outside of Great Falls. 

My name is Helen Johnson and I am from Lewistown, Montana, which is almost two hours outside of Great Falls. I have experienced the stress of traveling for treatment first hand as I battle breast cancer. I am lucky I am usually able to manage my appointments and treatments at the Great Falls Clinic Cancer Care department by getting a ride to town from a friend or family. But sometimes treatments and/or tests require an overnight stay and that is a struggle for me. In early July, I was in this situation and thankfully the Great Falls Clinic Legacy Foundation was able to arrange and cover my hotel room. This was no cost to me but I understand this is not always an option due to the limited funding available. 

Having a place to stay for patients would be one less thing we would have to worry about. What a relief it will be to know that there will be a place to stay right next door to the Cancer Care Center for out-of-town patients like me. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this proposed housing facility - my family and I can't thank you enough.

Paver Naming Opportunities Available
Create a Lasting Tribute

The Great Falls Clinic Legacy Foundation has different size pavers available within the future patient housing facility (as shown to the left).

Please help support the new project by honoring or memorializing a special loved one with a commemorative paver prominently displayed with a personal inscription within the facility.

Each paver is durable and engraved with your message. The cost is $1,000 for a 12" x 12" size ( UPDATE: 20 MORE JUST ADDED! ), $750 for an 8" x 8" size and $500 for a 4" x 8" size paver. Pavers will be placed in visible locations and be of a material consistent with the decor and architecture of the new facility.

For more information or to reserve a paver, please call Samantha at 406-771-3107 or email samantha.shinaberger@gfclinic.com.

Or you can complete the paver form online at www.gfclegacy.org/donate .
