Welcome to Our Home!
The Cancer Association of Anderson was founded in March 2003 by a group of cancer survivors, health care professionals and community leaders to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and survivors and their families living in Anderson County, S.C. We depend on donations and fund-raisers to help us help your friends and neighbors. Please support our work in 2014!
Signa Stewart was one happy clown with CruzControl serenading her at the
10th Annual Girlfriend's Tea on March 1. A great time was had by all--more
than 300 women and a few men attended.
