The quilt is currently on display at CRC and will also be displayed around town & at the Walk. 1 ticket for $1.00; 6 tickets for $5.00. The drawing will take place at noon on Nov. 21 at CRCFL.

Compassionate Care Award

The Cancer Resource Center was honored this week as the 2014 recipient of the "Dr. Roy Coats Compassionate Care Award" from Hospicare and Palliative Care Services. The plaque reads, "In keeping with the highest standards of patient care as exemplified by the life & work of Dr. Coats, this award is given for consistently providing exceptional, compassionate support to Hospicare patients allowing them to live their lives as fully as possible." We are truly honored & humbled.

Be a virtual participant in the Walkathon & 5K Run!

Leigh Dezelan is scheduled to work at Wegmans during our Walkathon & 5K on October 25, but that won't prevent her from participating. She's going to walk 2 miles around the inside of the store during her workday raising awareness and support. What a great idea!

We're excited that we have our first team that includes participants from 5 different states! It's "For Mama Beth"'s team that was formed in honor of Beth Jolles. Beth will be here, but she'll be joined at the same time by loved ones who are running in West Virginia, New Hampshire, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina. What a terrific idea! We'll post a team photo that digitally connects that entire team.

Cancer Research Meeting - November 12th from 5:15-6:45pm
Hagan Room, Cornell Vet School

We collaborate with Cornell University in holding monthly seminars in which cancer research is presented in lay language. Most months, a doctoral student reviews a developing area of cancer research.

Everyone is welcome. We've found these meetings to be lively and fun. Researchers, students, clients, and members of the public all attend on a regular basis.

If you'd like a ride from CRC to Cornell, call Bob at 277-0960.

Volunteer Opportunity

Are you a people-person with good listening skills? CRC is looking for a
Reception Volunteer to help at our downtown office on Monday or Wednesday afternoons.
The work involves providing direct assistance to individuals calling or visiting CRC for support and information. Please contact Sharon Kaplan sharon@crcfl.net or 607-277-0960 for more info.

Article by Bob Riter in Brown-Dudley "“I think the way to save the world is by helping your neighbor. Do things local. It’s better to do a few simple, concrete things than just spewing rhetoric.”

A nice article just appeared in the Cornell Chronicle about our collaboration with cancer researchers.
