  1. Educational materials related to your diagnosis, cancer prevention, nutrition, treatment side effects & more
  2. Transportation issues
  3. Gift items for persons currently in or recently completed chemotherapy like wigs, hats & scarves.
  4. Books & magazines
  5. Pillows & blankets (from donors so availability will vary)
  6. Support: information about area support groups; referrals to Reach to Recovery for women with breast cancer
  7. Assistance with other issues related to a cancer diagnosis such as how to obtain a disabled parking permit, financial assistance programs, food banks, and much more

Feel free to drop in, look around and say hello!
