Who We Are
The Berrien County Cancer Service (BCCS) has had the honor of caring for Southwest Michigan's cancer patients since 1948. We are a unique skilled oncology nursing service that provides compassionate care for cancer patients and those with related illnesses in the comfort of their own home. We are able to do this at no cost because of the generosity of our community; we are "neighbors helping neighbors" in a time when local cancer patients need our special care.
In addition to our nursing care services, we have an extensive loan closet of medical equipment and supplies that we offer at no cost including nutritional supplements, wound management supplies along with incontinence products. We have wigs, hats, turbans and can provide breast cancer patients special products they may need. We host an art program for children and families impacted by cancer to provide emotional support. We assist local cancer patients (Berrien County) being treated by any oncologist.
