Be a SUPERHERO! Run for a Cause! The Wellness Wagon (formerly Radiation Vacation Van) needs your help and support! All donations stay LOCAL to help LOCAL community members. The program costs between $8,000 to $13,000 a month to operate. Because of the support of businesses and individuals, the Wellness Wagon continues to operate through private donations and grants.
You can easily see why the Wellness Wagon program is something we are compassionate about. The program is a life saving service. The program provides individuals of all ages from the Uintah Basin (Daggett, Duchesne and Uintah Counties) with FREE medical transportation to the Salt Lake City and Provo, Utah area medical facilities.The program is operated 100% with private donations and grants. Individuals utilize this service for various reasons including; low income, lack of access to care, no means of transportation, not to mention the burden of the long drive. Just to give you an idea, some individuals have ridden the van five days a week for 10 weeks to receive radiation treatments. However, the program is not just for cancer patients. ANYONE with a medical appointment is able to take advantage of this amazing service. The van made its first trip on April 3, 2008 and has been helping local people for the last seven years. As of March 2015 the van has transported 2,199 individuals making 1,120 round trips to Salt Lake City area.
