    How do I access the programs and help at Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana?

    Simply call and make an appointment to meet with an advocate. An initial “get acquainted” meeting will help you understand everything available and give us a chance to understand how we can best help you and your family during this time.

    You will complete a short information form and spend 30 minutes or more with a Cancer Services advocate. Our services are available to anyone regardless of their ability to pay. From this time on we’re here to help in whatever way you need.

    Call (260) 484-9560 or toll-free (866) 484-9560.

    We are able to do what we do through the generous support of individual donors, and local corporations and charitable foundations and United Way. People who understand the impact that a cancer diagnosis makes on a family and want to help.

  • History:
  • Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana was founded in 1944 as the Allen County Cancer Society. In an effort to build and strengthen the local programs and services the leadership affiliated with United Fund in 1953 (later United Way of Allen County) and joined in the community-wide fund-raising effort.

    To better describe who we are and what we do, the name was changed in 1994. For many years friends in nearby communities have asked us to serve people with cancer in their county. In 2006, we became Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana serving Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells and Whitley counties. The organization is entirely supported by charitable donations and 100% of the donations stay in the local community.

    Each year our Client Advocates serve more than 2,200 people with cancer and their families. We are proud to have developed a nationally recognized program supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

    Cancer Services maintains its commitment to helping people with cancer by providing individual support, durable medical equipment, information, transportation, health supplies, financial assistance, complementary care and support groups.

    What we do makes a difference here in our community for friends & neighbors. We know that a knowledgeable and compassionate friend supports the patient as well as the family.
