October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Various events planned to support Taos Cancer Support Services

Posted

Since 2011, Taos Cancer Support Services has been serving area residents from early diagnosis of cancer up to a year after treatment.

It funds services that connect people with help to meet their basic needs, reduce stress and promote healing. The services consist of transportation, gas cards, food and lodging assistance, massage and acupuncture, yoga and fitness activities, Look Good Feel Better, (a gathering for women who have had breast cancer for hair, makeup and scarf ideas), and a weekly support group (Tuesdays from 4-5:30 p.m.), as well as navigation to additional resources.

October is a big month for Cancer Support Services as it is cancer awareness month. All the proceeds that CSS receives go directly to people with cancer and their families.

For more information, contact Susan Strong at (575) 751-8927, sstrong@taoshospital.org, 413 Sipapu Street, Taos.
