Throughout the year, the Young Supporters Board of the UAB
Comprehensive Cancer Center plans events and activities
through its patient and family services committee for cancer
patients at UAB. This includes providing dinners for patients
and their families staying at the American Cancer Society s
Joe Lee Griffin Hope Lodge, delivering healthy snacks to
the center s inpatient units and bringing special treats to
patients during the holidays. The committee, led by co-
chairs Lauren DeMoss and Jessica Jones, works closely with
Cancer Center staff to provide a comforting experience for
all cancer patients and their families.
