Cancer Patient Services is dedicated to providing encouragement and practical support to cancer patients and their families in Mount Forest and surrounding area. We provide transportation for Mount Forest and area cancer patients, free of charge, to treatment centres in Mount Forest, Kitchener, Toronto, Hamilton, London, and elsewhere. For transporation, please phone 519 509-2300. Our team of volunteer drivers are ready, willing, and able! They drive more than 12,000 km each month.
Through the Cancer Care Coordinator at the Family Health Clinic, we also provide emotional support and other services that can help patients and their families as they deal with cancer diagnosis and treatment. We are wholly supported by the community through memorial and other donations, purchasing and donating to the Mount Forest Thrift Shop, and attending our events such as the Pansy lunch. Cancer Patient Services and the Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation operate the Mount Forest Thrift Shop which is your place to go for good used clothing and household items.
The Thrift Shop supports the Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation and Cancer Patient Services Corp and is located at 134 Main Street S. Mount Forest, Ontario. Phone number is 519-509-7283. Hours of Operation are Tuesday to Friday: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, Saturday: 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
