New Cancer Resource Center opens in October

Posted On: July 12 2011

The program utilizes trained volunteers and staff to help patients and family members access information, programs, and resources needed during cancer diagnosis and treatment.  Cancer diagnoses can be overwhelming, these resources are  invaluable support during this difficult time.  Ann Durusky Lenoir Memorial director of volunteer services adds, “Working to help cancer patients is an ideal role for volunteers and we hope to use volunteers in this special project.  We are excited to work with the American Cancer Society who will offer special training for assisting patients in this new center.  Interested community residents can call me to learn about this, and other volunteer opportunities at the hospital, at 252-522-7006.”  To learn more about the new Cancer Resource Center or to talk to Janet Scism, social worker at the Lenoir Memorial Cancer Center about programs and resources, call 522-7600.  “The ACS is pleased to partner with both Lenoir Memorial and Carteret General Hospital to offer this service in the east. This will make it easier for community members to access information about ACS quality cancer information and resources. We don’t want anyone to feel they have to fight cancer alone. The easy availability of this resource will help patients and families face and conquer their non-medical challenges related to cancer.”    -Sarah Swain, community manager for Eastern NC American Cancer Society
