Cancer Action, Inc.
June 22, 2011
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.
