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!)
Working with those for whom cancer is part of the fabric of their lives has been a long time commitment for Mary. That journey began when she was practicing as a Physician Assistant in medical oncology in New York and later
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!
