CAS-hh pamphlet offends reader

Dear editor, I was dismayed and, frankly, offended when I read the text of a pamphlet, which I found in my mailbox this week. It was produced by CAS-hh (Cancer Assistance Services of Halton Hills), and the implication was that they are the only organization to be supported in the current cancer campaign. For the information of newcomers to Acton, and any others who may not be aware of it, Acton has a very active branch of the Canadian Cancer Society, which offers all patient services, including free transportation, and depends on our financial support to continue these services. This branch has never used valuable resources to rent an office, with its further expenses, but, as many Acton and area residents will tell you, the volunteers who operate from their homes are easily accessible and eager to help in any way they can. Please respond as generously as you can when a canvasser from the Acton Cancer Society comes to your door. Irene Watson, Acton
