People coming together to support a cause; that's what it's all about for the Oklahoma Panhandle Partners in Guymon.
This is an independent support cancer group with a new office located at 312 N. Main in Guymon and they are excited about this new part of the organization to be open to the community.
"After years as Oklahoma Panhandle Circle of Friends, we have decided to form an organization that can help people going to any cancer treatment center," said Becky Baggerly of Panhandle Partners. "We have the same hard working committee that has been committed to helping relieve the financial and emotional burdens of cancer."
She said their dream of having a central location in Guymon to distribute forms and information on cancer support has come true with a generous donation of office space from Carol and Mike Denney, a grant from the Guymon Ministerial Alliance and donations from their fund raisers.
"We are still the Tough Enough to Wear Pink sponsors on Friday night of the Guymon Pioneer Days Rodeo," she said.
Sue Wieditz is the new Office Manager for the organization.
Although this organization is just now opening its office, they have already been helping those in the area who have been battling cancer for a while.
They have played a huge role in supporting those individuals by providing gas cards and wigs for cancer patients in need, as well as providing emotional support.
Oklahoma Panhandle Partners has a shared vision for the future of cancer patients in the Oklahoma Panhandle.
They invite everyone to go out and join them as they celebrate the beginning of their great and influential journey.
They will be hosting an Open House and Ribbon Cutting from 5-6:30 p.m., tomorrow, March 6 for their new office.
This is a great opportunity for the community to show support and see all the great things this organization does for those cancer patients fighting for survival.
