Our Mission

Caring For Our Community Since 1948

The mission of the Berrien County Cancer Service is to provide compassionate in home skilled nursing care and supportive resources for those affected by cancer or related illnesses in Southwest Michigan.             

  • In-Home Nursing Visits:
    In-home nursing visits and other cancer care services are provided by experienced and specialized registered nurses to cancer patients and their families at no cost.
  • Durable Medical Equipment:
    Our Loan Closet allows us to lend needed medical equipment to patients for in-home use.  We have a supply of commodes, walkers, shower chairs, wheel chairs, and other assorted equipment that is loaned to cancer patients free-of-charge.

    We have a private room where wigs, turbans and scarves can be tried on. Additionally, for breast cancer survivors, we have a supply of breast prostheses and mastectomy bras for those who have no insurance coverage.

    We offer medical supplies such as those needed for wound care, incontinence, nutrition support, as well as a variety of other miscellaneous supplies.
