One of the most powerful tools in the fight against cancer is knowledge – knowledge about treatment options and side effects, knowledge about coping techniques and lifestyle concerns, knowledge about life after cancer.

The Holmes Cancer Resource Center, located within the Sparrow Cancer Center, provides a quiet, convenient location where you can access all this valuable information. It’s a place you can turn to for the latest on cancer and get the tools you need to best manage your health or that of a loved one.

  • Brochures, books, audiotapes and videotapes which may be checked out to read or view at your leisure
  • Opportunities to request a search for information on a particular topic
  • Computers with Internet access
  • Interactive cancer education CDs
  • Copier and printer
