Heroes of Hope

 

Alone we are strong. Together we are stronger.

Cancer support creates a strong force against a deadly disease that literally touches everyone in some capacity. No other organization provides the faith- based support that CanCare does. CanCare can do that because of the partnerships with more than 150 corporations, hospitals and churches of varied faiths. These special reinforcements allow CanCare to offer services to patients in the medical community, members of congregations and corporations. By offering community education and support through outreach events, CanCare reached almost a half million people between its inception in 1990 and 2016.

 

Meet some of CanCare’s volunteers.

They have experienced cancer themselves and are now making a difference in the lives of others who are facing a battle with cancer. CanCare has hundreds of volunteers who know firsthand the fear, anxiety and questions that go along with a cancer diagnosis. If you would like to talk to someone who has survived your diagnosis, click here to fill out a short contact form. Information shared with CanCare is confidential and secure. There is no cost and no catch. We are a volunteer based, nonprofit organization.

When it comes to being a willing listener, I’m on speed dial. It’s is my pleasure to do this for others through CanCare. Each person is different – some want to talk once, some want to email with me and some want to talk for hours.
