This self-supporting organization helps those suffering from cancer in Morgan County and beyond. They provide various need-based services and accept donations.

"Cancer changes everything," Debbie Taylor, a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma survivor, said. "You begin to think about the things that are really important - your family, your friends are the most important things when you're going through treatment. They're your support.

"When we have a support group, we want to be there for you as well," Taylor continued.

You can help SHOC by calling 423-215-4429.
