Donald W. Reynolds Cancer Support House

This magnificent organization provides cost free, ongoing support for patients fighting cancer. The House is considered a “haven” where patients join others to accomplish a shared goal-survivorship.

The Cancer Support House is the largest free-standing cancer support facility in the country. Located away from a sterile hospital or clinical setting, the Support House provides individuals a comfortable and inviting place of recovery and hope.

At the Cancer Support House, “survivorship” is their number one priority. If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, they are there to help. When you come into the support house for the first time, you will find yourself in a comfortable setting, greeted by a friendly smile.

The Cancer Support House serves as a centralized resource hub for survivors and their families in Western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma. In addition to the service and support they provide, they also have strong relationships with other non-profits and healthcare providers in our community and around the United States. Some examples of these valuable partnerships include the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen Ozark Affiliate and the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition along with various churches and other local non-profits.

For more information please call 479-782-6302. The City of Fort Smith appreciates “The Donald W. Cancer Support House.”

We all have friends or family that have gone to the Donald W. Reynolds Cancer Support House. My friend, Susan Petersen (Mayor Sanders former assistant) is one of them. This organization helped her to put a beautiful smile back on her face.
