Would you like to help people going through treatment for cancer? Do you have a family member or friend impacted by cancer or wish to honor a loved one who has dealt with difficulties of this disease? Volunteers and partners are wanted to assist others with fundraising and organizational efforts to provide financial and emotional assistance for cancer survivors.
An organizational meeting will be held on Thursday, Feb. 27, at 5 p.m. at Spooner Health's Conference Room. Entrance is through the main hospital entrance.
Possible efforts could include sponsoring a Breast Cancer Support Group, support group for other cancers, gas cards to help with travel costs associated with treatments, money for motel expenses associated with treatments, a wig bank, help phone number, website, library for cancer information, and other resources.
