Because no one should face cancer alone, our Cancer Resource Center is here to support you, help you find resources, and guide you through the often scary and overwhelming cancer journey.

The Center

Our center is operated and staffed by a compassionate, caring and trained volunteer staff. Many have personally experienced cancer and all have been touched by cancer in some way.

Resources

Supported by the American Cancer Society, the center has access to written information and research. We also provide prosthesis, wigs, hats, lap quilts and other items to help you. Many items are handmade and donated by caring and talented community members. Learn about other Palouse area cancer resources.

We host American Cancer Society classes, including Look Good...Feel Better and Reach to Recovery. Call our office at (208) 883-6030 to find out when the next class is offered.

If you need other resources, our volunteers are ready to connect you with the many local cancer support resources in our community. Simply contact us at (208) 883-6030 or cancerresources@gritman.org for help. You may also want to visit the frequently asked questions page.

Ongoing care

Our Cancer Resource Center volunteers care deeply about you. We support those receiving treatment at our Oncology Clinic each Tuesday by offering to sit with you as you receive your treatment. A caring shoulder to lean on can help during difficult treatment days.

Volunteering

The Cancer Resource Center is always looking for more people to provide resources and care for our friends and neighbors. Contact the Volunteer office at (208) 883-6231 for information about volunteering. All Cancer Resource volunteers undergo training by the American Cancer Society.

Collaboration

We proudly collaborate with the Palouse Area Cancer Coalition (PACC). Together with other organizations throughout the Palouse, we are continually improving and updating our resources and tools to help you become a survivor.
