What is UCAN?
The United Cancer Assistance Network of Southeast Missouri, a 501(c)3 organization, is designed to provide individualized support for area cancer patients. Our mission is to help ease some of the burdens brought about in the wake of a cancer diagnosis, thereby enhancing the quality of life experienced by local cancer patients.
UCAN seeks to fill an important gap left open by other cancer support organizations--to provide direct assistance to individual cancer patients. We're a non-profit charitable organization funded by local citizens who want to lend a hand to their friends and neighbors right here in Southeast Missouri. We currently serve the Missouri counties of Butler and Stoddard.
The United Cancer Assistance Network has had another grand year, thanks to the generosity of our local supporters. Cancer victims have received gifts of assistance in so many forms, including nutritional support, travel assistance for cancer treatment, medical equipment and supplies, plus many other greatly needed items. UCAN is extremely grateful for all of the support.
