How can I get access to the many services offered by the American Cancer Society? I hear they offer so many things, but I just don't know where to go on their website or what would be good for me.
Christina Bach, MSW, LCSW, OSW-C, Oncology Social Worker at the Abramson Cancer Center at Penn Presbyterian, responds:
The American Cancer Society is a WONDERFUL organization! Check out the blog I wrote for Oncolink which details many of the great programs offered.
The first step is to CALL THEM! 1-800 ACS 2345; this will help you get started with the ACS and they will able to tell you what programs are available to you specifically in your geographic area.
