The Cancer Resource Center of the Finger Lakes and the Tompkins County Public Library are partnering throughout the month of February to provide cancer information and assistance to Tompkins County residents.
Bob Riter, Executive Director of the Cancer Resource Center, will be available at the library from 4-6pm every Thursday (Feb. 5-26) to meet with individuals on a drop-in basis to answer questions and to direct them to helpful resources in the library and on-line.
A table with cancer-related resources will be on display at the library throughout the month.
Check out the new blog being developed by some doctoral students at Cornell. Similar to the monthly seminars, the intent is to explain the science of cancer in clear language.
When someone goes through chemotherapy treatment for cancer it can affect them in many ways from the physical to the social to the emotional. At the Cancer Resource Center, we try to support individuals who are experiencing the many side effects of cancer treatment. One way we do this is by providing head scarves, wigs, and hats for those who experience hair loss, and quilted tote bags to carry their belongings to treatment.
We are recruiting experienced sewers & quilters who would like to make beautiful head scarves and tote bags for our clients. We have patterns for that can be emailed or given in hard copy form. If you are interested in sewing or would like to make a donation of material for this project, please contact Fran Spadafora Manzella, Associate Director or 277-0960.
Lina Bagepalli is a doctoral student in Cornell's Graduate field of Biochemistry,
Molecular and Cell Biology.
Everyone is welcome. Researchers, students, clients & members of the public all attend on a regular basis. If you'd like a ride from CRC to Cornell, call Bob 277-0960
Beginning in Feb., the Colorectal Group will be meeting at CRCFL on the 1st Tuesday of each month from 5:30-7:00 pm. For individuals with any type of colorectal cancer.
Help us poster for events! CRC has several fundraising events throughout the year. We advertise as much as we can, but ALWAYS need help hanging posters in Ithaca and the surrounding towns.
