Kathleen Sutton Fund
Cancer is a disease that knows no boundaries. The Kathleen Sutton Fund (KSF) has a single and simple mission: To reimburse transportation costs for women undergoing treatment for cancer, living in Clallam, Jefferson, Kitsap, and Mason Counties.

The fund covers mileage, ferry fees, parking & other transit expenses while undergoing cancer treatment, providing some measure of financial relief during this difficult time, with a goal to allow them to focus on healing. In 2021: -Total number of women assisted: 168 women with $122,9475 -Amount distributed to Bainbridge Island residents: $13,398. Thank you for your support.
