What We Do
The Cancer Resource Centers of Mendocino
Our medical consultation support services include:
Assistance in preparing questions for medical appointments
- Accompaniment to medical appointments
- Audio recording services and written summarization of the appointment
We sponsor a variety of support groups located in Mendocino, Fort Bragg, and Ukiah.
Our offices house up-to-date lending libraries on subjects such as diagnosis specific information, stress management, relaxation, nutrition, and personal stories from people facing cancer.
We provide referrals to community resources.
We offer our clients hats, wigs, breast prosthesis, and bras.
Around a table in a house in the
woods, the first ideas sprang forth to provide our communities
with access to cancer-related services. We were women living
with cancer who had sought information and resources and found
there was no one place to go to locally. With this very real
need in mind, we worked hard, formed a board and opened our doors
in the summer of 1995 in an alley way in a room off a garage.
We became the first non facility- based cancer resource center
from Marin County to the California-Oregon border.
Today, over eleven remarkable years later, CRCMC has become a central, depended-upon,
absolutely essential part of our rural community, not only for people who
have cancer but for the community as a whole. The Center has grown beyond
our wildest imaginings. So too has the spread of cancer; some are healing
, some have died. More and more of us are touched.
Our hope is that someday our work will not be needed, that prevention will
be foremost on the minds of research funders, governments and citizens
of the world, and that the Precautionary Principle will be in place globally.
Until then we will continue serving. Thank you friends, for allowing us
to do just that.
We have an Advisory Board, many of whom
are members of the medical community:
