Community members have an opportunity to assist cancer patients and families through a number of volunteer and donation opportunities. Several different funds designed to help cancer patients in need are administered through the Alamance Regional Charitable Foundation. These funds assist with diagnostic procedures, medications, transportation, wigs and prosthesis, the KidsCan support group, as well as basic living expenses. For more information about donating to the foundation, call 336-538-7945.
Volunteers help check patients in for radiation treatment, assist patients who need to go to other areas of the hospital for tests or treatment, transport lab tubes and serve in the American Cancer Society Resource Center. Volunteers also assist patients in the Mebane Cancer Center. For more information about volunteer opportunities, contact Volunteer Services at 538-7545.
