Comfort Zone store begins final sales

February 5, 2019

BULLHEAD CITY — The Comfort Zone Cancer Support Gift Shop has started selling off the remainder of its merchandise to focus more on counseling and support services to people dealing with cancer.

The gift shop, 2250 Highway 95, Suite 406, has helped support the group’s other activities and is offering all items for half price or less. Sales hours are Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This effort will continue until everything has been sold.

Phyllis Anderson, coordinator of the nonprofit organization, is reviewing current methods of providing support and presentations. She said she is considering ways to best connect with local cancer patients and their families.

“I’m going to think about age groups and populations,” she explained.

That likely would include awareness classes that present information in an understandable way. She provided one example topic: Genetic testing to determine one’s risk for one or more forms of cancer.

“Knowledge is power,” she noted. “But I want don’t to get to the point where people don’t understand what I’m saying.”

People at Comfort Zone hand out information pamphlets on cancer and offer referrals for related services and assistance programs. Assistance with some expenses is available.

Comfort Zone can help cancer patients obtain at-home medical items such as bedside commodes and hand railings for bathrooms and other walls. It also provides hats, scarves and blankets for people undergoing chemotherapy as well as prosthetics and breast forms for breast cancer survivors.

Contact Anderson at 928-444-1241.

No dates have been established for the group meetings and other events.
