Ways to Give
Make a gift.
Treating cancer is a costly process. At WMCC, we are committed to providing treatment to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. To support that commitment, countless donors have made lifesaving contributions to our center to support patients.
Your gift to WMCC is critical to providing immediate relief to cancer patients facing enormous challenges. Every gift matters as we work to support patients in need and the valuable programs that sustain them on their cancer journey.
Make an in-kind donation.
WMCC is profoundly grateful to be a part of a generous community that supports us in fighting cancer. Because of your thoughtfulness, WMCC is able to offer many important programs and classes through our Patient Care Services. Patients and families depend on these programs to give them the tools they need to live their best life while fighting cancer. We couldn’t do it without you.
Host a fundraiser.
Every year community members give generously of their time and talents to plan fundraising events benefiting WMCC. Past events have included golf outings, sporting events, dinners, and house parties. Every dollar donated from these community events supports the mission of WMCC.
Get involved, volunteer.
Volunteers are the heart of the WMCC team. Our volunteers work together with staff and donors in our common mission to defeat cancer.
WMCC volunteers are dedicated, compassionate people of all ages who make a shining difference in the lives of our patients.
Some of our volunteers have defeated cancer themselves and want to pay forward their gratitude, while others may just have a service or talent they want to share.
Whatever your reasons for volunteering, you can look forward to a richly rewarding experience.

Not every patient can pay every bill. WMCC ensures that all current patients receive the highest quality care, regardless of their ability to pay.
Some patients lack reliable transportation. This program secures rides to WMCC to ensure all treatment schedules are followed. It also provides patients with same-day appointments at both WMCC and Bronson Cancer Center transportation between the two locations.

The group shares friendship while covering a wide variety of topics related to their cancer experiences. Currently, our Coping Together support group series is on pause. Please check back periodically for future offerings. If you have any questions, please contact our social work department by phone at 269.384.8629 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
