Cancer resource library celebrates first year

by: Shanna Fortier Associate Editor

When the Judith C. Macko Cancer Resource Library opened a year ago at Florida Hospital Flagler, Director Duane Price had no idea how quickly it would take off.

“We knew there was a need for this locally,” Price said. “But we have been surprised by just how much the community has engaged with us.”

In its first year in operation, the volunteers of the Judith C. Macko Cancer Resource Library, located on the second floor of the hospital, have held the hands of more than 150 newly diagnosed cancer patients and provided them with free education tools.

As part of the Florida Hospital Flagler Cancer Institute, the Judith C. Macko Cancer Resource Library offers an extensive collection of books, brochures, articles and videotapes about cancer. Cancer patients, their families and community members, such as health professionals, students, and teachers, are all welcome to use all of the library’s free services. 

In addition, registered cancer patients are able to receive wigs, head coverings, mastectomy bras and prostheses along with information on current American Cancer Society programs, all free of charge.
