Community Cancer Services Fund
Community Cancer Services of Isabella County is a nonprofit started in 1982, which was created to combat the financial weight imposed on local families going through one of the most traumatic times of their lives. The organization relies completely on contributions, memorials and fundraisers to support these families during such a great time of need. These services include reimbursement for transportation to treatments, mammograms for those without insurance, and information, referrals and free mastectomy kits for women who have had mastectomies. CCS serves about 20-25 patients each month and approximately 80 different patients each year and about 97 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to these clients.
The Community Cancer Services Fund was established at the Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation in 2006 to provide support for CCS to continue carrying out its role and mission in the community. CCS started the fund in hopes that it would provide a financial resource to sustain its continually rising expenses. Community Cancer Services is composed of an all-volunteer Board of Directors and advisors who donate their time to make Isabella County a better place to live. With the help of this fund, they will be able to continue improving the lives of local residents for years to come.
