About Our Organization

Columbus Cancer Clinic, a Medicare certified service, provides education about cancer prevention and early detection, head-to-toe cancer screenings, examinations and mammograms, regardless of a client’s ability to pay. In 2012, the program served 3,135 clients providing 1,724 mammograms, 756 head-to-toe cancer screenings, and 655 clients with home care support services. In addition, the program provides low-income, underinsured or uninsured individuals living with active cancer with medical supplies, medical equipment, medication assistance, transportation to and from cancer-related medical appointments, pantry items, nutritional supplements and emergency financial assistance to home care support patients who are about to lose daily necessities, such as housing and/or utilities. The program will provide skilled nursing care, home health aide, social work, therapy and/or a dietitian if needed to keep the patient in the home setting. All home care support services are free of charge. In 2012, the Home Care Support service served 655 Central Ohioans living with active cancer. Wigs and breast prostheses may be obtained free of charge.
