BCCS is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation that provides skilled Oncology nursing care at no cost for people of Berrien County who have a cancer diagnosis. BCCS also has a large medical and comfort/nutritional support closet as well as high quality wigs, prostheses and other items for our patients with cancer at no cost. This is only possible through our generous community.
BCCS is funded by United Way of Southwest Michigan, donations, memorials and our own signature fundraisers such as Pennies for Patients™. Last year,
$22,017.32 was collected and in our 28 years of collection, we have raised over $464,085.05! We hope that this year as our 28th year of collecting pennies we can hit the $28,000.00 mark!
Enjoy our refreshments all day at the Stevensville office which will be supplied by our staff and volunteers. Agency tours will be available throughout the day. Refreshments will also be served at our Niles location from 12-2p.m.
Thank you for supporting our 28th annual fund-raiser and for being so generous in helping us care for our local cancer patients. All funds raised locally, stay locally for our beloved patients.
