Cancer Resource Center
Questions, concerns, worries, fears and hopes are all part of the process
for a patient diagnosed with cancer. Cancer patients and their families
often find it difficult to navigate and process the information needed
to sort through the array of available therapeutic options and decide
what is right for them. In addition to education, outreach, social services
as well as printed resources, Marshall’s Cancer Resource Center
provides a vast array of classes, support groups and services. Most services
