Miles Perret Cancer Services is a haven for individuals and their families fighting, surviving and living with cancer. We are here to provide emotional support, guidance, resources, programs, and most of all, hope. Our services are comprehensive and always provided at no charge. No appointment is necessary and there are no financial qualifications. We are located in Lafayette, LA and our mobile unit extends services to outlying communities throughout Southwest Louisiana.

Since 2002, Miles Perret Cancer Services has served over 18,000 local families. However, the reality of our success is not in numbers but in lives changed. By taking control of their individual paths to wellness, our clients are empowered to think of themselves not as cancer patients, but as survivors.
