By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The American Cancer Society's huge nationwide job cuts won't apply to Southwest Georgia cancer offices.

The Cancer Society is cutting 140 jobs nationwide, 80 in Atlanta.

Even though donations here are down 15 percent in South Georgia, no layoffs are planned for now.

Instead, they're working to stretch their budget for patient services and education and advocacy programs.

The American Cancer Society national operation employs more than 1000 people.
