Shirley Adkins

Client Aid Coordinator

Ms. Shirley is Danville-Pittsylvania Cancer’s Client Aid Coordinator. She manages our services with the needs of each client, as well as provides encouragement as they travel down their cancer journey. She also makes an effort to encourage the clients in a positive way as they travel their cancer journey. Shirley states, “Some days are better than others, but there is always a need for support and encouragement. Sometimes a person just needs to be encouraged to take that “one more” step or to be congratulated when they make progress in this arduous walk.”" A country girl from Pittsylvania County, Ms. Shirley loves animals (even when they are not hers), reading, crocheting, and teaching Sunday School.
