Central Plains Cancer Services does not receive any government or municipal funding. The
services we continue to provide are done through the generous donations we receive through
community donors, memorial donations, business sponsors and fundraising efforts. In 2018
we provided over 1,200 rides for cancer patients & their families in the over 72 communities
we service. We hope you will continue your commitment to helping us provide services in
your area.
We are deeply grateful for your continued support. Your gift today makes a big difference of
services in your rural area for today, tomorrow and every day!
