Patient resource libraries

Our libraries provide free resources for patients and caregivers.

Massey staff and volunteers are dedicated to supporting your cancer journey. We will be happy to assist in person or by phone or email. We can deliver materials to your room during a hospital stay, to the clinic where you may be receiving treatment or to your home, free of charge.

Both libraries offer:

  • Pamphlets on a variety of cancer topics
  • Research on any cancer topic, including clinical trial information, to help sort fact from fiction
  • Information for patients and families focusing on end-of-life issues
  • List of support groups in the Richmond area
  • Wig Salon: Free, private consultation for head-wear and cosmetics, as well as free hats, scarves and wigs
