Welcome to Our Home!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!
We're celebrating 10 years of Help, Hope and Support of cancer patients!
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. If you would like to give a birthday gift, we can always use money, Forever postage stamps and gift cards at office supply stores.
Read more about what we've done the past 10 years:
It's time to shop for Christmas, and what better place than our office? The annual bazaar has begun, with hand-made scarves, jewelry, Janie Harris Cards and the new children's book "Three Baby Wrens Who Went for a Ride" by cancer survivor Dot Yandle!
We are also selling chances on the gorgeous pink ribbon quilt below, made by St. Mary of the Angels' quilters. (If we sell enough tickets, we can draw for it before Christmas! Help make that happen, please!)
Stop by and shop for a good cause!
The charming 100-year-old home that houses our office belongs to Dr. Rajeev Malik, and we appreciate so much his generosity in providing us this beautiful home!
