Cancer Care / Betsy Tontini Nursing SCHOLARSHIP

The Cancer Care / Betsy Tontini Nursing Scholarship was established in 2000 to honor the memory of a Wenatchee nurse who touched numerous lives with her warm and special caring. Betsy was instrumental in organizing Cancer Care of NCW as well as founding “Our House”, a home for out of the area patients to stay while receiving treatment.  On May 17, 1997 Betsy died following an extended battle with cancer.

"My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. [He] told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.”

STRATEGIC CONSULTING GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated Aero Methow Rescue Service must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service.  This program allows our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.
