What is CCMC?

CCMC is a non-profit organization with funding realized from the United Way, local donations and memorials. Administrative costs are exceptionally low, assigning 97% of every dollar collected to Patient Care and Cancer Early Diagnosis Programs. There are countless organizations which raise funds for cancer research, namely the government, pharmaceutical companies and Universities. While a cure lies in that direction, person who are diagnosed with one or more of the specific cancers cannot wait for the miracle treatment. They need help right now with available treatment, supplies, drugs, transportation, medical bills, etc., and in their midst is Cancer Care of Marquette County to assist them and their families with the support and types of help they need NOW.

Our ALL-volunteer organization provides Patient Services to those with a cancer diagnosis to assist with the catastrophic health care costs caused by this disease and its treatment. You do not need to be low-income to qualify for financial help. We also sponsor Prevention/Detection Programs for citizens living in Marquette County as well as participate and aid in similar cancer programs sponsored by other county organizations if funds are available.
