Donate to the Community Cancer Center

Each year the Community Cancer Center takes exceptional care of hundreds of cancer patients. In line with our mission, we continuously work to be the destination of choice for cancer services in our community. The Community Cancer Center Foundation has established funds to enhance our efforts to provide state of the art technology along with comfort, compassion and support to cancer patients and their families. Donated funds are used to support cancer prevention & screening and education programs as well as nutritional services, Chaplain & Social services, transportation programs, support groups and charity care.

Please support our Cancer Center services with a gift today. Your tax deductible contribution will enable you to join in our journey to provide needed services to the whole person along the pathway of healing.

Make A Donation

In order to continue to grow and expand the services and support we are able to extend to our patients, their families and the community, we rely upon donations from individuals and businesses. Every dollar counts as one that stays in our community to support our mission to improve the health status of individuals by providing comprehensive, community-based cancer care.

The Community Cancer Center relies heavily on caring members of our community to volunteer their time in dozens of important capacities.  There is a constant need for volunteers to contribute their time and energy, as their warmth and friendliness can be a tremendous help to our patients coping with cancer and treatment options.

There are also numerous community-wide fundraising events throughout the year that raise thousands of dollars annually to support cancer research and patient care. The Community Cancer Center is committed to maintaining a strong relationship with the local community through such events and partnerships.

Volunteers at the Community Cancer Center truly make a difference by providing assistance to our patients and their caregivers. In 2017, volunteers donated over 9,500 hours of service to the Center. Our volunteers share their talents by greeting, transporting, serving refreshments, entertaining, and anticipating needs.  Countless volunteer hours are spent assisting in clerical duties and replenishing supplies in order to support our medical staff so they can provide excellent service for their patients.  Our Healing Garden Volunteers share their fundraising, aesthetic talents as well as manpower to make sure our interior and exterior spaces are nurturing and promote healing.  Volunteers are an integral part of our support team.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at the Community Cancer Center, please submit a volunteer application or contact Lea Powell, our Volunteer Coordinator at or (309) 451-2220.

Front Desk

Our Front Desk Volunteers provide a welcoming face to new and returning patients. In addition to answering questions, they serve as an escort to physician offices and staff locations. Volunteers maintain our waiting areas and coffee stations, as well as serving refreshments to our infusion patients.


Many volunteers are working behind the scenes in our offices. Typing, filing, answering phones, restocking and various other support services are essential in helping the Center provide excellent service to our patients.

Piano / Music

Some volunteers choose to share their musical talents. Many sign up for hourly shifts to provide soothing entertainment for our patients and employees.

Gift Shop

Those with retail experience and enjoy operating a cash register might decide to volunteer in our gift shop.

Healing Garden

For those with a “green thumb”maybe volunteering in our gardens might be appealing? Last year our Healing Garden Volunteers planned, fundraised, and installed our patio garden. Additionally, they have helped to create a meditation Labyrinth, a pergola with swings, and a beautiful butterfly garden which is visible from the infusion area.  They continue to work on various other projects around our 4 acre site.
