American Cancer Society needs folks interested in volunteering at the ACS Cancer Resource Center located in the Providence St. Mary Regional Cancer Center.

Volunteers are interviewed and take classes to prepare for this service, said Jean Carwile Masteller with the ACS center. The resource center operates in partnership between ACS and the hospital's regional cancer center. The ACS Cancer Resource Center offers area cancer patients, their families, caregivers and the public immediate information about specific cancers and ACS services and programs, in addition to resources available here, such as services, wigs, lodging and materials.

Volunteers will be trained on the latest information and resources available to share with cancer patients. The next training opportunity is expected to be offered in early to mid-June, Jean said.

Those wishing to serve as volunteers must have computer experience, and be compassionate to patients' needs. Having worked in a health care setting is beneficial, though not required, she said in a release.

For more information about the program or to sign up as a volunteer, contact Jean at 509-529-8930.

ACS helps people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helps them get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; helps find cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and fights back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and encourage communities worldwide to join the fight.
