Members of the GBCSC may be eligible to reimbursement or prepayment of expenses related to travel costs, hospital parking, and overnight accommodations related to their out of town cancer-specific appointments. 

Your Gift is Matched

Your gift to the Brian and Anita Millett GAP Fund this month will be matched up to $21,000 thanks to the generosity of Brian and Anita’s daughter, Donna, and son-in-law, Conrad, and Anita herself!

100% of your donation will provide this vital service to people accessing cancer treatment and appointments out of town. 

Submit a completed GAP application form along with all supporting documentation to or in person at the Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre.

For Hospital Parking Passes: A listing of upcoming appointments is required.

For Accommodations: Some out of town appointments may be eligible for accommodation expenses (the cost of a hotel stay). Please contact the GBCSC in advance of these stays to ensure eligibility. Receipts must be provided for reimbursement.

Brian Millett thought he was one of the lucky ones. Not because he was diagnosed with cancer. But because he could afford to be treated for it. Thanks to he and his wife, Anita, the GAP fund was born.
