ANCHORAGE – The Matanuska-Susitna area will soon have a new, high-tech facility to help people fight cancer. The Mat-Su Valley Cancer Center is set to open its doors this fall and is hosting a community event this Friday to celebrate.

The Medical Director for the Mat–Su Valley Cancer Center, Dr. Clare Bertucio, says the center will provide radiation and oncology and a “community cancer center”

Starting on Monday cancer patients in the Mat-Su Valley will be able to be treated closer to home. “It’s an hour each way and so I mean I think right there that’s a huge benefit,”
