Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana is asking the public for donations of plastic shower chairs. These items are essential in helping people with cancer bathe safely at home.
The shower chairs, which Cancer Services provides to clients free of charge, ensures the client’s safety and allows them to reserve their energy. Shower chairs with a back rest are in demand because of the comfort level for cancer patients, however, Cancer Services will accept showers with or without a back best.
Because of donors, Cancer Services was able to loan out 1,276 pieces of durable medical equipment to local families touched by cancer in 2017.
Donations can be dropped off at Cancer Services, 6316 Mutual Drive, Fort Wayne, IN 46825. A donation acknowledgment letter is available for tax records.
