20-year-old Chelsea Duran was only married for nine months when she was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. At first the doctor thought she was pregnant, but tests soon revealed that her growing abdomen was a 12 inch tumor. After surgery & chemotherapy, she is cancer free! Chelsea and her husband, Erik, left college, and found full-time work managing a local Pizza Hut. Living with her parents, Chelsea is covered under her father’s health insurance, which has a $5,000 deductible. Your donations will help this young couple on their journey through treatment.
UC provided $138,375 in financial aid in 2013, but by helping clients form a plan for their time in treatment, UC also realized that we could refer them other other organizations that helped them find over $440,000 that they didn't know about.
In this picture, Shayne Rock has had surgery and finished radiation treatments for thyroid cancer, so she is cancer free! Like so many of United Cancer’s clients, the combination of out-of-pocket treatment costs and loss of income lead Shayne to UC for help. Shayne is a 20 year employee of KMC Controls, and she has a 19-year-old daughter studying business at IPFW. Shayne also works at Maplecrest Country Club and loves to play golf. In fact, Shayne played golf when she attended Goshen High School. Your donations helped Shayne with her cancer bills, and we can’t thank you enough!
The Jimtown Cheerleaders raised $1,500 with a bake sale, a collection during the game, and by selling t-shirts and bracelets in order to raise funds for the United Cancer Services of Elkhart County. Great job and thanks for your help!
United Cancer is an Elkhart County non-profit that specializes in helping with emotional & financial support. Some organizations might help if the patient has a specific kind of cancer, through an internet application. But UC helps patients with every kind of cancer and is easy for the patients to find, since our office is right by Concord Mall.
Laura Rasch, pictured here with her husband Ejner, had an extremely rare form of cancer in the soft tissue of her right arm. Soon after this picture, Laura had successful surgery to remove the tumor. Laura’s insurance leaves 10% of her costs out-of-pocket, and before the surgery she already had $40,000 in treatment bills. Laura is a 17 year employee of the Elkhart County Health Dept., is a member of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, loves to read inspirational books, and is the Vice Chair of the Suicide Coalition. UC helped Laura pay some of her treatment costs, thanks to your donations!
United Cancer is fortunate to have support from the Northern Indiana Susan G. Komen. Komen provides a $15,000 grant each year to support UC's program to help Elkhart County breast cancer patients. Thanks for your support!
