Hi Folks...wanted to share this information:

Frequently Asked Questions for Cancer Patients and Their Caregivers

Even during major weather events, the American Cancer Society is there to offer patient services and programs.

People in areas affected by storms who need American Cancer Society services should call our National Cancer Information Center at 1-800-227-2345. Cancer information specialists are available to answer calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If you (or a loved one) have cancer and have had to evacuate your home or treatment center, or if your treatment plan has been changed due to a recent natural disaster, you may have trouble getting the cancer care you need. The following questions and answers may help you figure out what you need to do to get your treatment back on schedule
