“It looks happy in here.”
This was said by an East Noble Swim Team member while touring our building, and it brought a smile to my face. We strive to provide a pleasant, uplifting environment for our clients, and to hear a young person voice this told me we are succeeding.
On January 25, representatives from the East Noble Swim Team visited to present the agency with a check and to take a tour of the facility so they would better understand what their donation provides for people with cancer.
$825.30 was given to Cancer Services! Thank you East Noble Swim Team!
About 2.4 million Hoosiers or 2 in 5 people now living in Indiana will eventually develop cancer. What impact does that have on our state? The Indiana Cancer Consortium put this infographic together to help answer that question.

Last Thursday, we hosted our first Drumming Circle and had so much fun. A small group joined us and learned the joy in creating noise in order to relieve stress and create connections. Gail Hamm, program director, describes the experience as a fun way to let go of stress. Through drumming, people may express emotions, reconnect with their inner child, and feel a greater sense of purpose as their noise becomes a part of a larger symphony within the group.
You can join us at our next Drumming Circle, which will take place on Thursday, February 28, from 7-8 PM. No experience is necessary and all instruments are provided.
Drumming Circle is open to the community. For more information, call Tina at (260) 484-9560.
Join us on Tuesdays from 10 AM to noon for Inner Palette, an expressive experience. Escape to the pleasure of your imagination after a short, relaxing meditation. All art materials will be provided and no art ability or experience is necessary.Drumming Circle

On Sunday, eleven of our client families enjoyed a Komets game together. We are often asked about our services for children with cancer. It is our mission to support the entire family on this journey. Bringing the families together, provides them with a support system full of people who truly understand what they are going through. It also gives the kids a chance to support each other. Thank you Fort Wayne Komets for hosting a meaningful event for our clients.
