It's not uncommon for someone to be directly related to or know someone else who has fought and been affected by cancer. Those involved know the terrible obstacles cancer can create. CHC's Community Cancer Center exists to help cancer patients and their loved ones through a difficult time and assist them and their family in every way possible. CHC's Cancer Center offers outstanding, compassionate care in a close-to-home setting.
