Cancer Association of Darke County Elects New Board Members

Left: Annette Sheppard, Vice President Right: Cole Morrie, President

Cancer Association of Darke County is a 501 C3 organization formed in 1995 to support cancer patients living in Darke County.

Through those years, the organization has been able to provide over $2 million to local cancer patients.

Funding comes from United Way, grants, fundraisers, memorials, donations, etc.

The organization is located at 1111 Sweitzer St. in the Wayne Cancer Center building.  Christine Lynn, Executive Director, has served in that position since 2011, and Trudy Eastland, Treasurer, has served since 2018.

The Board of Directors (local volunteers) oversees the association and meets monthly to review and discuss income, expenses, patient benefits, fundraisers, etc.

Recently a new President and Vice President were elected by the board. Cole Morrie is serving as President, and Annette Sheppard is serving as Vice President.

Other board members include Janet Ashworth, Carolyn Fletcher, Lori Kimmel, and Sherry Marten (Kay Curry, who served since the beginning, has recently retired, and the organization is most grateful for her years of service and hard work.)

We are happy to have the new leadership and other board members as well.

If you think you might enjoy serving on the board, just contact Christine at 937 548 9960 or email at
