In February 2000, President Clinton officially dedicated March as National Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Since then, it has grown to be a rallying point for the colon cancer community where thousands of patients, survivors, caregivers and advocates throughout the country join together to spread colon cancer awareness by wearing blue, holding fundraising and education events, talking to friends and family about screening and so much more.
What You Can Do
•If you're aged 50 to 75, get screened for colorectal cancer
regularly. Screening tests help prevent colorectal cancer by finding precancerous
polyps (abnormal growths) so they can be removed. Screening also finds
this cancer early, when treatment can be most effective.
•Be physically active.
•Maintain a healthy weight.
•Don't drink too much alcohol.

Who are we?
"Ambassadors of Christ who are changing lives while saving lives, one loving touch at a time"
Healing Hands was founded in 2007 to supply basic healthcare services to the uninsured of the mountain area (we do not have restrictions as to county or state of residence) as well as to provide an uplifting spiritual message of hope, and exemplify Christ’s love to the sick and infirmed. Healing Hands is a nonprofit non-denominational, faith based ministry staffed by volunteers and funded solely by donations made by individuals, businesses, churches/church organizations and civic organizations; the generosity of the community.
Healing Hands provides free basic healthcare needs such
as those you might see in a non-urgent care facility. The Clinic is able
to see those patients with sub-acute health problems such as:
• Sore throat/Strep
• Gastric Flu
• Urinary tract infection
• Sinus infection
• Ear infection
• Simple skin lesions/rash
Healing Hands is able to assist the patient in the managing
of specific uncomplicated chronic conditions such as:
• Diabetes Mellitus
• High Cholesterol/Triglycerides
The Clinic offers affordable lab monitoring (maintaining a budgeted allotment, when funds are available, to assist those patients who are unable to cover the cost), EKG’s and other diagnostic testing which can be performed in-house. Healing Hands will outsource imaging services to regional centers who accept patients on a self-pay or indigent basis and will also assist clinic patients with limited emergency dental care when funds are available.
