SPOTLIGHT: Mary Clayton NEW Raleigh Regional Cancer Companions Representative

Meeting Mary Clayton at the Cancer Companions Training in Raleigh NC, I was so impressed not only with her deep understanding of how cancer effects a person but also her gentle compassion for hurting souls. Today, we are proud to announce,  Mary Clayton is our first Cancer Companions Regional Representative. (YIPPEE!)

felt the call to help start an inpatient respite unit for Montifiore Hospice.
Since retiring from medical practice, Mary has found many opportunities to volunteer with Hospice of Wake County, Alliance Medical Ministry, and with her home church’s Health Ministries at White Memorial Presbyterian Church. Mary and her husband Jack love living in Raleigh and have found it a great place to raise their three adult sons, Zach, John and Will.  We are thrilled to have Mary join the Cancer Companions staff!

About Karen Tripp

Beyond being a Christian Counselor and the President of Cancer Companions, Karen loves to read (she's a great reader) and loves to sing (she's a bad singer) in her home near St Louis, MO. Cancer has personally touched Karen's personal life through her dad - a 23 year colon cancer survivor. Impacting lives for Christ through her speaking, writing and counseling fills Karen with a passion which infuses every task she approaches. (except matching socks. Karen hates matching socks.)
