Our Resource Library
Here at Cornucopia Cancer Support Center, we take pride in our resource library, covering a vast array of topics from caregiving and cookbooks to spirituality and stress reduction.
Participants are welcome to check out any of our books, DVDS, and CDs. We also have many informational brochures and pamphlets for you to keep. Stop by for a cup of tea and browse through our collection. Click here for a list of the resources we offer.
What’s New in the Resource Library
Karen Tripp, founder of Cancer Companions, has donated two books to Cornucopia’s resource library – God is Bigger than Your Cancer and God is Bigger than Your Grief.
Cancer Companions has expanded into North Carolina. You can find a church in several communities who have Christian volunteers trained in helping individuals and groups as they journey with cancer.
In addition to our on-site library, visit our online resources page for information about cancer, complementary therapies and other related topics.
