Cancer Outreach Thrift Store, Page Arizona

Thrift Store Manager, Grace Norton

The 4000 sq. ft. Cancer Outreach Thrift Store, which opened last April, 2014, needs one large or two small pellet stoves to help keep the space warm.  They also need help with the cost of installing the pellet stove if anyone can pitch in.

I know that this is a tough time of year, but we appreciate any consideration you might be able to give to this matter.

We are doing our best to get through the winter, but we need something done soon! — Jo Bjorholm

If anyone has a used pellet stove they can donate to the store, please call Jo Bjorholm at 928.645.2055. The store is located at 916 Vista Ave.

About the Cancer Outreach Center

The Cancer Outreach Center helps provide transportation and motel rooms for patients when they are receiving treatment.

Jo Bjorham realized that Page residents need help when her niece went to Flagstaff to help a friend diagnosed with Cancer, but she had to sleep in the car because no one could assist the family with transportation or accommodation expenses. The idea that her niece had to sleep in a car and had no money for food or motel expenses really upset Jo. She realized that Page residents have to travel for treatment and it is critical to the healing process that the family provide support and be with the patients when they are out of town. This was the birth of the Cancer Outreach Center.

The Cancer Outreach 4000 sq. ft. facility has a nice selection of furniture, clothing, art, decor, electronics, and much more.

Along with Executive Director Jo Bjorholm, The entire Board of the Cancer Outreach Center works on a volunteer basis.  Thrift Store manager, Grace, is the first employee.  Jo’s 6′ 8″ husband, Leo works tirelessly alongside her, volunteering his time with every aspect of the operations.

Patients in need of travel assistance from the Cancer Outreach Center can contact Jo Bjorham at 928.645-3333.  A simple 1-page application is required to verify that the person is being treated.  That’s all they need.  After that, they are eligible for gas cards and motel expense assistance while receiving treatments in such places as Flagstaff, Tucson, St. George, Las Vegas, and Phoenix.

When you shop at the Thrift Store, you are making a donation to the Cancer Outreach Center located at 916 Vista Ave. in Page, Arizona.
