Buzz: Cancer Navigators seeks community’s help to decorate wreaths for auction by Oct. 31. Northwest Georgia Housing Authority to speak at Monday’s Noon Optimist meeting.

Media release: Cancer Navigators invites members of the community to decorate and donate wreaths for its annual silent auction to be held in November.

Undecorated wreaths are available for pickup from Cancer Navigators office, located on the third floor of the Harbin Clinic Tony E. Warren, M.D., Cancer Center, 225. W. Fifth St., Rome. Completed wreaths should be returned to Cancer Navigators by Oct. 31. The finished wreaths will be auctioned Nov. 1 through Dec. 2.  Proceeds will help Cancer Navigators provide resources and services to cancer patients in the community.

The wreaths will be displayed at various locations including the lobby of the Cancer Center, on the second floor of Floyd Medical Center and at Cherokee Medical Center in Centre, Alabama. Each wreath will have a bid sheet for individuals to write their bids on. The highest bidder on each wreath will get to take it home.  ​

“Proceeds from the silent auction allow Cancer Navigators to provide a range of free services to those in our community affected by cancer,” said Sarah Husser, Fundraising and Community Outreach Coordinator for Cancer Navigators. “These services include counseling, complimentary care, such as massages, acupuncture, music therapy and stress management, nutrition support and assistance with transportation to treatments.” For more information contact Husser at 706.509.5040 or shusser@cancernavigatorsga.org.


Lee Hight, chair, and Sandra Hudson, executive director, Northwest Georgia Housing Authority, will present the program at Monday’s meeting of the Noon Optimist Club.   The club meets at 11:45 a.m. in the Three Rivers Club, State Mutual Stadium.  Guests and prospective members are welcome.
