A message from our President/CEO

To our CanCare community: On behalf of CanCare, I want to offer my greatest concern and deepest compassion to all the individuals affected by the devastating storm along the Texas coastline, and Houston region. Like many of our Houstonians today, I too, have personally experienced the loss and uncertainty that a storm of this magnitude can bring. I have faced the devastation of waking up at 2 a.m. with close to four feet of water in my home, rounding up my family to safely evacuate, and leaving all our personal belongings and decades of memories behind. One thing that I learned throughout that experience was, I was not alone, and neither are you. With my 14 years of experience at the American Red Cross along with our dedicated CanCare staff members, we are here to help connect you with the assistance you may need during this trying time. Although our office will be closed until September 5th, we are available to assist those in need now.

If you have been affected by Harvey, we want to hear from you. Replacing fear with hope has been the mission of CanCare for 27 years. When you choose CanCare, you choose hope that comes from survivors sharing their own cancer experiences. It is our utmost commitment to ensure that no one battles cancer alone, and as we begin to rebuild our great city of Houston and the surrounding communities, we want you to know that you are not alone on this journey either. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions about your road to recovery. I am here for you. Stay strong, Houston. We are with you, always.

Warm regards,
Cristina Vetrano
