Cancer Society The American Cancer Society is recruiting individuals who have an interest in breast cancer, prostate cancer, skin cancer, nutri- tion, youth health issues, tobacco issues and cancer patient quality of life. Volunteers are needed to serve on regional committees to review the needs of the communi- ty, as well as other volunteers to provide programs, following training. Time commitment can be as little or as much as one can give and there is the need for bi- lingual volunteers to help reach the growing Latino community. They are also needed to man health fair booths, give presenta- tions to organizations and schools. The American Cancer Society offers a variety of educational programs on prevention of cancer and early detection for both youth and adults, as well as services such as support groups, trans- portation to radiation therapy and needs volunteers resource information. Program materials and training are available on a variety of can- cer-related topics. The ACS is also recruiting addi- tional volunteer drivers for its Road to Recovery program. Through this program Sussex County residents are transported to local treatment facilities for cancer therapy. Drivers may use their own vehicles or a six-passen- ger van owned by the ACS. Presently, 20 volunteers take indi- viduals to their radiation therapy at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. The ACS would like to increase its services to encompass the growing needs in Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island, Millsboro and Selbyville for transportation to Atlantic Cancer Center, Berlin, Md.
