Answers for cancer queries

I am a volunteer for the American Cancer Society. I am the Mission Delivery chairperson for Relay for Life Whidbey Island. Since this community gives through the Relay For Life, I feel it is important that our island community knows where the money is going. Periodically I will be submitting letters to keep you informed.

It is important that our island community knows about all the programs and information that is available to them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, do you know what you need?  Not sure where to start? The ACS has information that can help you understand cancer. Go to www.cancer.org or call 1-800-ACS-2345.Whether you know what you need, be it definition for a strange word you heard at the doctor’s office, a wig, more information on a loved one’s treatment options or you’re not sure where to start, call on us. Our extensively trained specialists help thousands of callers find answers. You’ll always find support on the other end of the line and someone who will stay on the phone as long as you need.
