The Helping Hands collaborative was initiated a year ago by Dr. Daniela Shapiro of Indian River Hematology and Victor Basile, director of Hope Imaging to increase access for these vital diagnosis tools for community residents who might otherwise postpone them or cannot afford them.

The Senior Resource Association will be providing transportation via Community Coach beginning at 8 a.m. Nov. 16 from the Gifford Health Center and running continuously to Indian River Hematology & Oncology and Hope Imaging.
