The primary purpose of the Dubois County Leukemia Association is to offer counseling, support and vital information to newly diagnosed leukemia and lymphoma patients in the area and their families and is gladly accepting holiday donations to hel defray upcoming cost in 2017.
Now this is done through a network of local volunteers familiar with leukemia, its treatments and the emotional effects of this type of cancer. The association also offers financial assistance to newly diagnosed patients and their families that is not normally covered by insurance during treatments. These expenses may include travel, food, lodging and loss of short-term income.
Checks made payable to the Dubois County Leukemia Association should be mailed to P.O. Box 75, Huntingburg IN 47542.
