Cancer Resource Center
In partnership with the American Cancer Society (ACS), the Cancer Resource Center is on-site at Morristown Regional Cancer Center to provide support to cancer patients, their family members and caregivers.
The center, staffed by trained and certified American Cancer Society volunteers, offers current cancer information, cancer programs and services, and referrals to community resources. This includes information on educational programs, transportation to and from appointments, and available resources.
The center is supplied with educational materials, a lending library, hats, scarves and wigs (for patients whose insurance does not cover this). The volunteers visit patients in treatment areas to offer assistance and raise awareness of ACS, MRCC and community resources.
For more information about the Cancer Resource Center, please call (423) 492-6220.

Road to Recovery
Having cancer is hard. Finding a ride to treatment shouldn’t be. Sometimes getting there is half the challenge. The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program needs volunteers to drive cancer patients to and from their treatments.
If you have a car and insurance, safe driving skills, and can drive as little as one morning or afternoon a month, you can give someone peace of mind and the chance to get to their treatments.
