I was first introduced to Cancer Action in 2005/2006 when my grandmother had terminal small cell lung cancer, Cancer Action helped me so much , they answered question I had about their services and other services available in my community. They helped me with supplement when my grandmother was going through chemo therapy & later with bed sheets , pillow cases , comfort items (crocheted blanket,neck pillow & pressure point pillows) all of these items are made by volunteer's . My Grandmother's death in September 2007 was a very sad day in my life . About 7 months after my grandmother passed away , I started to feel as if I wanted to give something back , to help someone else as I had been helped & Cancer Action has helped me to fill that need in myself. Everyone at Cancer Action is dedicated to helping everyone they can who has cancer & is in need of any assistance.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

So many way , they have helped me with my Grandmother, when she was going therough treatment. Everytime I'm at Cancer Action I'm blessed to be a small part of helping someone get the help they need while going through Cancer , maybe it's a caring ear , or maybe it's someone getting a ride to a cancer related treatment or supplement while going through treatment or , a hat or a wig for someone who has lost their hair due to treatment . Everyone at Cancer Action is just Great!!

I have been both a client and a volunteer at Cancer Action. My journey with the organization began with my breast cancer diagnosis at 43. Cancer Action provided me with a wig, in-dwelling cath supplies, and emotional support. I was fortunate to have excellent insurance and wonderful friends and family, who could take me to appointments, etc. so I did not need to utilize Cancer Action's programs such as prescriptions aid and transportation. Shortly after finishing treatment, I began volunteering with Cancer Action, mainly with PC support (logging volunteer supplies and hours, entering clients, etc.). The organization is a group of remarkable people, consisting of both employees and volunteers. They provide hugely needed support and services and do so with compassion, friendship and humor. I have never met a more remarkable group of women as the ones I "work" for at Cancer Action. I am a better, more richly developed, and happier person for my association with them.

I began my association as a client then as a volunteer, so I have experienced the organization from all angles.

I would have them better known so they would have adequate incoming resources to be able to expand and reach all the cancer clients they need to.
