With their financial hardships

To financially assist women in the Yuba-Sutter community who are battling female forms of cancer such as breast, ovarian, cervical, uterine or endometrial cancer. By relieving the financial burden of not being able to pay their day to day bills that they may be struggling with due to lack of work during treatment, we feel that we can provide a small sense of relief during such a difficult time in a woman’s life.


The Geweke’s Caring for Women Foundation has assisted over 370 women since 2006 with up to $2,000 in financial help. Thanks to your financial fundraising support, we have also been instrumental in the purchase of multiple pieces of imaging equipment for our local medical partners including 3D Mammography units. In addition, we are excited to share that the Rideout Health Cancer Center will begin offering a shuttle service for patients going through treatment thanks to the donation of a new 10 passenger Transit Shuttle van through the foundation. This will assist those who do not have the proper transportation or support to get them to their very important medical treatments.

“Thanks to all of you who have helped from the Geweke Women’s Foundation: The commitment and most certainly the compassion from all those involved in making your foundation possible has definitely made a positive impact in my life. Because of your prompt assistance and working with the staff at Yuba City Advanced Imaging, I was able to have the biopsy I needed in a timely manner. Thank you!”

“Thank you so much for helping me with my bills. You not only helped financially, but more important, emotionally! The stress of not being able to provide for my family was overwhelming and I did not know what to do! I still can’t believe your kindness and I’m so thankful there are people like “YOU”! You are my “Angel”! I will always remember your generosity, kindness and love! Thank you.”

“I cannot say “THANK YOU!” big enough and often enough for your financial help with the paying of my property taxes.”

“I wanted to express my very deep gratitude for your foundation’s generous help. At a time like this, to have such loving and caring support is certainly beyond anyones expectations.”

“Thank you so much for your financial assistance of $2,000 in honor of my mother. Your assistance helped us handle mom’s funeral expenses and other final expenses. I and my family want you all to know how much we appreciate your kindness and consideration. The kindness of your organization has helped us in a time that is very difficult in many ways. It does my heart good that there are people in the community willing to provide assistance to families during difficult times. Thank you!”
