Cancer Resource Library
Connecting patients, families and their supporters to community resources.
The Cancer Resource Library is a community resource dedicated to helping cancer patients, their families and their supporters gain a better understanding of the issues surrounding the disease. The library is located on the first floor of the Dorcy Cancer Center.
