Note From Our Founder

I believe everything happens for a reason and I believe one of the reasons I got breast cancer is to improve the lives of all women in the Des Moines area that hear “yes, it’s breast cancer.”

I learned many things through my journey. Medical information was provided by my medical team, but the rest was left for me to figure out. After completing chemotherapy, I realized that there is a real need in the Des Moines area for an organization to support cancer patients’ non-medical needs in an easy, well-coordinated fashion.

If you are unsure about enrolling for Can Do Cancer services, take my advice, you will appreciate the help. Cancer is long journey that doesn’t need to be walked alone. Even if you have a supportive family and friend network nearby, cancer can be hard on everyone. I know you CAN DO CANCER, and we’re here to help you through it.
