The Green House
The J. Leighton Green, Jr. Cancer Resource Center is affectionately named for the El Paso attorney whose battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) ended in 1998. While the name of the library "The Green House" was intended in tribute to
Leighton Green, Jr., the name itself evokes light, hope, help and healing.
The Green House provides cancer, health and wellness information for patients, caregivers and medical professionals in various mediums – books, pamphlets, audio and video offerings as well as a stand-alone, bilingual touch screen computer (Cancer HelpNet™) dedicated exclusively to cancer related topics.
The Rio Grande Cancer Foundation is pleased to offer this vital service – the only dedicated health library in the region that is free of charge and is located in five satellite libraries within local treatment centers.
