Cancer Research Meeting – Wednesday Feb. 12th from 5:15-6:45pm
“Obesity and Liver Cancer” Presented by Dr. Elizabeth Moore
Cornell University Vet School Hagan Room (Note New Time & Location)
This month, we’ll hold the meeting on the Cornell campus, and we plan to alternate future meetings between the Cancer Resource Center and Cornell.
These monthly meetings are a collaboration between the Cancer Resource Center and doctoral students involved in cancer research at Cornell. Research topics are presented in lay language and discussion is encouraged.
Light refreshments are provided. If you’d like a ride from CRC to Cornell, call Bob at 277-0960.
Financial Advocates Program
When you’re dealing with cancer, you often don’t have the energy you need to call insurance companies or to research possible sources of financial assistance.
We have a group of volunteers ready to advocate on your behalf. They can make calls, suggest resources, fill out forms, or otherwise make life just a little easier.
If you’d like assistance from a financial advocate, contact Bob Riter at email@example.com or 277-0960.
Volunteer Thank You Breakfast a Success!!
Jan. 29th, CRC staff had a chance to show appreciation for our amazing volunteers by preparing a tasty breakfast. Thank you to everyone who showed up for some good food and company!

CRC Does Not Solicit by Telephone
From time to time, we hear from individuals in our community who have received phone calls requesting donations to the Cancer Resource Center (or even to the Ithaca Breast Cancer Alliance – our name until 2007).
We do not solicit donations by phone, so these solicitors are either representing another organization or they are misrepresenting us.
If you’re ever uncertain about a request from a cancer organization, please call our office (277-0960).
