The day may come when you or someone you love may ask:

  • I just moved to this area.  Where can I find an accredited mammography center?
  • My doctor is recommending a choice of treatments.  Do you have information I can read to learn more?
  • I feel so angry about having cancer.  Do others feel this way?
  • My women's/men's group would like to know more about cancer.  Is anyone available to speak at one of our meetings?
  • My friend has just been diagnosed with cancer.  How can I best support my friend during this difficult time?

We're here to help.

Questions like these are being answered each day.  The Lee County Area Cancer Resource Center is a program within the non-profit organization, Combined Community Action, providing information, education, and support that encourages individuals to be involved and knowledgeable in their health care.

The Lee County Area Cancer Resource Center is a rural community-based source of information, education and support that encourages individuals to be involved and knowledgeable in their healthcare.  All services are free of charge.

  1. Supportive Counseling
    All of the current staff and volunteers who work with clients are survivors.  The survivors understand how it feels and what it means to be diagnosed with cancer.  They are available to talk with the newly diagnosed clients and long-term survivors and caregivers to offer caring support and information.

  2. Support Group
    Support Groups are available for persons recently diagnosed (within the last year).  Additional support groups will be developed as the need arises.

  3. Library
    The Lee County Area Cancer Resource Center provides a lending library of books, CDs, DVDs and audiotapes to help survivors become better informed about cancer and healing.  Also, the library has computer access with help, if necessary, for the most up to date cancer-related information.

  4. Peer-to-Peer Support
    The Lee County Area Cancer Resource Center has a group of volunteers who have been trained as peer support volunteers.  Peer volunteers share their experiences with their particular treatments and offer support and helpful information.

  5. Limited Crisis Funding
    Limited crisis funding is available to assist individuals currently undergoing treatment and needing to travel out-of-town to a cancer treatment center.  Those qualifying for assistance must live in Lee, Bastrop, or Fayette Counties.

    An application must be completed.  Official documentation of the scheduling of doctor’s appointments with treatment dates must be included along with the application.  Completion of the application does not guarantee financial assistance.  Assistance is based on eligibility and availability of funds.
