Our History

Who are we?
Our History

The Dubois County Leukemia Association had its meager beginning in the mid 1980s in a waiting room at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health in Indianapolis, Indiana when the parents of two leukemia children from Dubois County met by chance and formed a commonbond and support team for each other. From this coincidence grew an outreach and support team for other parents and relatives from the county experiencing the common fears, difficulties and challenges of leukemia.

Unfortunately state statistics show Dubois County has one of the highest rate per capita of children’s leukemia in the state. As the number of cases has grown, so has the Dubois County Leukemia Association—being incorporated in the spring of 2000 with a tax exempt status as a not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization.

The Dubois County Leukemia Association officers and board of directors is made up of individuals all having a common thread of being related to past and/or present leukemia patients.
