Breast cancer survivors sought to help others

Cancer can be an isolating disease. Having someone to talk to who has been through a cancer diagnosis and understands the difficulties that come with it makes the journey more bearable. To have someone who is willing to share their experiences and let others know they are not alone can be lifesaving.

The Hawaii Island Field Office is recruiting volunteers — breast cancer survivors more than one year past the last date of treatment — for its Reach to Recovery volunteer program. The next training session is slated from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the American Cancer Society Hawaii Island field office. For more information, call 935-0025.
