Ancillary Boards

The Cancer Support Center is fortunate to have ambassadors that help spread the word about the important work done at The Center on behalf of those living with cancer. In addition to The Center’s Board of Directors, there are four ancillary boards that are committed to promoting and supporting The Center through their meetings and special events. The ancillary boards are: the Women’s Board, the Homewood Community Board, the Mokena Community Board, and the Junior Board.

For more information about our ancillary boards, call 708-798-9171.
