offer person to person help and needed emotional
and practical help to cancer patients and their
families who are facing the crisis of diagnosis
and treatment of cancer. The patient and their
family may be suddenly faced with a host of emotional
traumas. We provide trained, caring volunteers
to help in such time of trouble. A sympathetic
listener, a place to turn for advice, a moment
of cheer and supportiveness, a friendly face and
a caring attitude can do much to tell patients
and their families, "You are not alone!"
This program is what separates us from other health-care
support organizations, our one-on-one support
is the hallmark of this special organization.
patients undergoing cancer treatments are hard
pressed for even such basic necessities as food
and clothing. In case of hardships, we help coordinate
services that meet basic human needs.
Transportation – Patients, many of whom
are weak and in pain, may spend long, hard hours
getting to and from doctor’s offices, laboratories,
radiation oncology centers, and hospitals for
treatments. Our two vehicles and volunteer drivers,
who often use their own cars, provide patients
with needed transportation.
