Ways to Donate
All of our services are provided to our patients free of charge because of donations from both businesses and individuals. Without this generosity, we would not be able to keep our doors open and many patients would go without valuable resources.
Remember that you may earmark donations to be used for certain services for patients such as gas cards, wigs, nutritional replacement drinks, or medical supplies. There are several ways you can donate today:
You may send donations to our mailing address at3 Central Plaza # 415 Rome, GA 30161
Drop off donations at our office located at255 W 5th St Suite 300 (3rd floor Harbin Clinic Cancer Center) Rome, GA 30165
Or securely donate online through PayPal
In 2014, Cancer Navigators gave out approximately $6,700 worth of gas gift cards to our patients who were struggling to meet the expense of traveling to their chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Unfortunately, the number of patients needing a gas card was much larger than what we could provide. It is evident that transportation issues is one of the largest barriers to care that our patients have. By donating a gift card to a local gas station or specifying that your monetary donation be used for gas, you can help a struggling patient make it to the doctor’s office to receive life-saving treatment.
Other gift cards you may consider donating include:
- Grocery Stores
- Wig Shops
- Medical Supply Stores
Many patients rely on the medical supplies that we have at our office to provide all the materials they will need throughout their cancer treatment. We encourage you to donate any supplies to our office that you no longer need or to buy them new!
Some supplies that have the highest demand include
- Adult Diapers (all sizes)
- Bed Pads
- Home Medical Equipment (bedside commodes, walkers, wheelchairs, etc.)
- Mastectomy supplies (sports bras, camisoles, bra inserts)
- Bandage supplies
- Ostomy supplies
- Non-prescription creams/powders
- Tracheotomy care supplies
Here at Cancer Navigators, we have a room set up to display the wigs, caps, and hats that we have on hand for women and men. Having this wig room has brought so much joy to our patients and their families, even if they don’t find something suitable to their style. Providing wigs/caps/and hats has proven to be one of our most popular services, but the room often needs replenishing to continue supplying these to patients! We would more than welcome your new or used wigs/hats/caps that are in good condition or donations that are specified for this service.
