20th Annual Big River Walk and Paddle
May 18, 2019
We sponsor several support groups that meet in Fort Bragg and Ukiah. Our offices have up-to-date materials to lend on specific types of cancer, stress management, relaxation, nutrition, and memoirs of others who have faced cancer. We provide referrals to other community resources. We offer our clients hats, wigs, scarves, breast prostheses, and bras. Our medical consultation support services include:
- Assistance in preparing questions for medical appointments
- Accompaniment to medical appointments
- Audio recording and written summarization of the appointment
Volunteers are vital to our organization! In most businesses, it is a good thing to hear that business is booming, but in our line of work, it means that someone in our community needs our help. We provide the training, you provide time and compassion. Ongoing volunteer needs include yard work (Ukiah and Mendocino) and volunteer drivers. For more information about current needs, call CRC at (707) 937-3833. Even if you cannot volunteer on a regular basis, let us know your schedule and we’ll work with you. If you are interested in volunteering for driving, ask for a copy of the Volunteer Drivers Enrollment Form and Drivers Confidentiality Form.

CRC’s Coastal office is now located in Fort Bragg
WE HAVE MOVED! After twenty-three years in Mendocino Village, the Cancer Resource Centers’ Coastal office has moved to Fort Bragg as of March 1. Our new office is located at 510 Cypress St., Suite B-200, next door to Mendocino Coast District Hospital. We have re-opened for business in our new place but appreciate your patience while we continue to unpack and settle in.
Our new office in Fort Bragg will be more convenient for many of our Coastal clients who live in Fort Bragg and have appointments at the hospital and neighboring medical offices. We will miss the quaint village feel of Mendocino, the ocean views and world-class clam chowder around the corner, but we have gained space for our support groups to meet as well as easier access for our clients in wheelchairs.
CRC was founded in the Village of Mendocino, back in 1994. We are all mindful of the history of the founding of the Cancer Resource Centers in Mendocino, which has not only been a wonderful place to work, but whose merchants have supported CRC with donations for many years. The most important thing is to continue to fulfill our mission and vision that no one will face cancer alone. The ability to serve ALL of our clients equitably is extremely important to all of us.
We extend our deep thanks to Alder Moving Services (707-964-7917) and owner Jayson Berger for donating the move as a charitable contribution to CRC. The moving crew was awesome and there was no way we could have made this move on our own. You guys rock!
Donations to offset moving costs are extremely welcome. Donations may be made through our website by clicking here. To discuss any questions or concerns regarding our relocation, please reach out to Executive Director Karen Oslund, email@example.com, or call our Coast office, 937-3833. (Our phone number is the same!) We will have an open house for the public later in the spring.

Being a woman is the greatest risk factor leading to a breast cancer diagnosis.
After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer found in American women. Some women are at increased statistical risk for developing breast cancer, such as a family history of the disease, but many women who are diagnosed with breast cancer have no obvious increased risk factors. The National Cancer Institute has a short, online tool for assessing a woman’s 5-year risk of developing breast cancer. It is found at bcrisktool.cancer.gov.
Each woman should learn the signs and symptoms of breast cancer and discuss with her medical provider the screening schedule that is best for her. Information on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer can be found on the American Cancer Society website. The Cancer Resource Centers’ lending library has many good resources available for loan, absolutely free of charge.
