ACS volunteers serve community

By The Staff

Those of us in Grant County have a special service in our community that some may not know about.

Recently, I had to have surgery for cancer that required radiation twice a day for five days consecutive days and occurring six hours apart, at 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., on Thomas More Parkway.

Due to some circumstances, I was not able to drive myself and needed help. I called the coordinator of the American Cancer Society and talked to Darlene Houchens. She in turn called volunteers that take their own time and expenses to help those in need like myself.

I met a lot of really nice people and appreciated their concerns, help and converstations to help someone they had just met.

To Brenda Stanley, Darlene Houchens, Pauline Kells Jones, Bernice Bell, Helen Fightmaster, Rosalee Tunks, Dick Dildine and Teddy Green, thank you so very much.
