American Cancer Society Resources

The American Cancer Society knows that easy-to-understand and accurate information is the number one need of cancer patients and their loved ones.

The American Cancer Society’s National Cancer Information Center (NCIC) is a nationwide help line open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, that answers calls and emails from cancer patients, family members and friends of cancer patients, and others who have questions about cancer-related issues.

To speak with a highly trained specialist who can answer your questions or direct you to resources in your area – any time of the day or night, call 1-800-227-2345. You can also visit the ACS website at cancer.org.

In addition to access to cancer information anytime, the Hope Lodge, Peter M. Wege Guest House is conveniently located adjacent to the local American Cancer Society service center.

The service center offers valuable cancer-related programs and services to the community. These programs include:

  • Reach to Recovery: Trained volunteer breast cancer survivors provide support and share experiences in a one-on-one visitation program for women diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • Look Good…Feel Better: Cancer patients are teamed up with a trained volunteer licensed cosmetologist who teaches them how to cope with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.
  • Road to Recovery: Volunteers provide free transportation to and from cancer treatment.
  • Bilingual staff available to bridge the gap between cancer patient services and West Michigan’s growing Spanish-speaking community.
  • Cancer Survivors Network: A community created by and for survivors and caregivers. From diagnosis, cancer becomes part of a survivor’s life as well as a caregiver’s life experience. Visit www.cancer.org. This program is available across the nation.
  • Relay For Life: The American Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser, Relay For Life is A 24-hour community event during which participants celebrate the lives of those who have had cancer, remember those we have lost, and fight back against the disease.
  • Making Strides Against Breast Cancer: The Society’s rallying cry against breast cancer, this is a noncompetitive walk held each October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Funds raised are dedicated to saving lives from this disease.

Numerous other programs, resources, and events are available through the service center. For more information, contact the Robert & Barbara Wood West Michigan Area Service Center at 616-364-6121.
