Since then, the Gouverneur Breast Cancer Fund has expanded its service area to include Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence, and Franklin counties, and has been able to enhance the mission of providing financial assistance to breast, and ovarian cancer patients during treatment and through recovery of said cancers so the patient can focus on healing and recovery.
