WHO BENEFITS & HOW?
In 2018, the Cancer Society provided 28,776 direct services to 4024 cancer patients and their families. Over 1,432 individual and group counseling services touched the lives of not only patients, but also their family members and the bereaved in our community. In addition, 78,242 cancer awareness and prevention programs/materials were provided to the general public.
Cancer makes people vulnerable on many levels. While attacking the body it can drain financial resources, strain caregivers and overwhelm families. For the past 54 years the Cancer Society of Greenville County has provided families from all walks of life with hope, support, financial assistance, counseling services and up-to-date cancer information. Cancer prevention and awareness programs have also been provided to the general population. We are not affiliated with American Cancer Society and are completely dependent on local donations. All funding comes from the Greenville community and all funding remains in Greenville.
Services are offered free of charge to local cancer patients and their family members. Areas of service include: cancer medications, prostheses, medical supplies, nutritional and disposable products, home health equipment, transportation assistance, education, support groups and individual counseling, as well as meeting many emergency needs.
