  • Jun. 20, 2011 12:00 p.m.

Anyone looking for the Ladysmith Cancer Unit can find it in its new home in the High Street building.


The unit has moved along with the Resources Centre and Seniors Centre to its new home on Second Avenue and High Street.


The unit was established in 1946 in Ladysmith.


Janice Grinnell, president of the local chapter, said the unit is full of information, pamphlets and supplies for people facing cancer.


“We have a complete file of everything here for cancer patients,” said Grinnell.


“Or if they just want to come in and talk.”


There is also a driver program to get patients as far as Victoria for appointments. People can also make donations.


The unit is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday to Friday.  Grinnell said the phone number stays the same and the unit can be reached at 250-245-0671 or e-mail
