What is the mission of your organization?

We are here to provide help to cancer patients who live in Auglaize County. We offer mileage for transportation to and from radiation and chemotherapy treatments, nutritional supplements such as Ensure and Boost. We help patients to get assistance for medications, dressing supplies, wigs, hats and miscellaneous cancer related expenses based on individual need. We give emotional, educational, and resource information and support.

Any other comments you would like to share with the students who might be reviewing your request?

I would be willing to come and speak to your group. I am a retired nurse and have had cancer three times. I started this cancer association in 2001. Each year we are giving out more and more to patients. In 2013 we gave out $21,000.00 for mileage reimbursement and $6000.00 in nutritional supplements alone.

Does your organization have volunteer opportunities available for high school students?

Yes

List possible volunteer opportunities -or- a link to where they can be found on the web.

We could use extra help when we have our yearly Spaghetti fund raiser dinner and possibly help out in our office from timt to time when school is not in session.
