Review for Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana, Fort Wayne, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After a routine hysterectomy, I was shocked to find out I had a rare form of cancer,fallopian tube cancer, and would need to undergo chemotherapy. My sister-in-law told a friend that used to go to my church about it, and she sent me the address of Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana. She had used their services and highly recommended them. My daughter took me for a visit, where I talked with a counselor, and we were shown around their warehouse. I was very concerned about "looking normal" for my students at school. I got my first wig and some hats for free. This made me feel somewhat prepared. I also borrowed the book "The Jester Lost His Jingle" to read to my class. This helped me explain to them what was happening to me and that they were part of the joy that I was reaching inside to help me keep going. I was able to work part-time for awhile, and am half way through my treatments. This week I had my first massage therapy session, which is also offered for cancer patients at Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana. It really helped me relax and feel better. They have truly been a blessing to me during this time.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Counseling, tour of supplies they offer, free wig and hats, books to check out, massage therapy.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...


Role:  Client Served & I recieved a tour of the warehouse and things that are there if I need them.
