For the past 27 years, replacing fear with hope has been a part of CanCare’s mission, and in the midst of our recovery from Hurricane Harvey, we cannot lose sight of the thousands of individuals who will also experience their own personal disaster – CANCER.

That is why the CanCare Board of Directors collectively contributed over $135,000 in matching dollars to establish the CanCare Strong. Houston Strong. Matching Gift Challenge. This means that your gift to CanCare today will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $135,000 and will have double the impact!

There is no doubt that our community needs us as we rebuild our beloved city of Houston, but we also know that cancer patients who depend on CanCare, still need us too.

Together, our volunteerism and philanthropy will stretch far and wide to support Harvey relief efforts as well as the on-going needs of the cancer patients and caregivers who rely on CanCare for support.

Let’s rebuild, recover and press forward together!


I definitely feel a strong support system is essential after a cancer diagnosis or flood. Many people in a crisis do not have the underlying assistance from friends and family and an organization like CanCare is there to let them know that someone cares and available to help and listen. People can recover from a crisis much faster just knowing that there is someone who truly cares about their well-being.
