What We Do

We recognize the diagnosis and treatment of cancer have a tremendous physical and emotional impact on the patient and family. Wings of Hope Cancer Support Center assists those with cancer at all stages of their illness and helps families and friends cope with cancer in their lives. Wings began as a monthly support group for cancer patients in 1987 and received its 501c3 status in 1994. Today, the organization offers support groups, companion counseling for patients and care partners, survivorship services, a resource library, an image renewal room, financial assistance and community educational opportunities to patients and their families in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro and southwest Iowa. All services are free of charge for those on the cancer journey.
