Cancer Assistance of Williams County is different from most other cancer agencies, because we're not a branch office of a national organization.
Our mission of support is uniquely different than that of research organizations. While the hope is that research will someday unlock the mysteries to the 200+ types of cancer; our mission is helping those for whom the research is too late. Our focus is right where we live, Williams County, Ohio.
"to bridge the need..."
1) Form a plan for their time in treatment,
2) Get connected to additional resources,
3) and provide financial assistance for cancer patients, by helping pay for treatment, supplies, and medicine

Our goal for Bike to the Bridge is to raise funds for direct financial assistance for CAWC's client programs. We also recognize and honor the people who are and who have come into our lives.
CAWC is supported entirely by volunteers and donations. Your tax-deductible contributions will increase funds for necessary treatments and expenses that occur for the newly diagnosed.

Paved roads, hills and valleys - absolutely gorgeous scenic country for 50 and 25 miles.
For our 10 milers, a newly designed "Snail Trail" that is anything but boring!
It is time to celebrate our nation's birth. Our country has gone through trials and tribulations, but has remained to be the land of the free.
Many things are happening in our country today; our service men and women employed oversees to hostile countries, immigration, unemployment, negative and sad news fill the headlines and are blasted from the TV and radio.
However there are many good things happening too; here in northwest Ohio the community support for our little agency is energizing and uplifting. Thank you for all who have called and are looking for updates on B2TB. I am trying to link the online registrations with online payments... hopefully by Tuesday it will be up and done. Please be patient with me - I am pedeling as fast as I can!
My name is Nancy and I am the Executive Director of this wonderful agency. The greatness of this organization is that - it makes a huge impact on people in Williams County, Ohio. Your friends, neighbors, co-workers, the lady at the checkout line, the guy driving the school bus, people who have names and live right here!
We do not have demonstrations on survivorship because our priority is at the beginning of the diagnosis. To become involved in their treatment plan, helping them set up their priorities of what has to be done first and how to stretch the dollar. So knowing WHO we serve is just as important as HOW we serve...
We help qualifying individuals with direct financial assistance. Mileage to and from the doctor, co-payments on meds and medical bills, as well as supplies. We provide the resources that are applicable to the individual. We educate and teach on how insurance premiums, medical provisions and other appropriate information. And most of all, we provide the emotional support that is often needed.
Do I think that Cancer Assistance of Williams County is wonderful, indeed I do. I hope to be posting pictures of some of those people that have been impacted and appreciative of the services that has helped them to "bridge the need..."
