In 1990 with an anonymous gift and the support of Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church in Houston, Anne Shaw Turnage, a colon cancer survivor, Founded CanCare. Faith continues to be an avenue of great hope as more than 300,000 “Annes” have received one-on-one support in their fight with cancer since that time — and more than 100 congregations provide a growing faith network of donations and volunteers.
