CancerCare's Year in Review

Cancer Care celebrated its 75th Anniversary with great pride. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and partners, we continued our mission of helping anyone affected by cancer. This included relaunching My Cancer Circle, a free online tool to organize and coordinate resources for caregivers, moving our New Jersey office into a larger space in Paramus and the publication of a new manifesto  declaring the importance of patients' values in treatment decision making.

Celebrating 75 Years

In its 75-year history, CancerCare has provided help and hope to millions of people impacted by cancer. We have distributed over $323 million in financial assistance since our founding in addition to providing a wealth of practical assistance. None of this would be possible without the trust of our clients and their families, the insights of experts and advocates, the dedication of our employees and, above all, the generosity of our donors and sponsors.  
Wanda's Warriors

This year, we lost the wonderful Wanda Leguillow, who worked for CancerCare's Co-Payment Assistance Foundation for 10 years. Toni Granello, Wanda's partner and caregiver after her diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, pays tribute to her amazing spirit in a blog post, In Memory of Wanda. Please take the time to donate to help those affected by pancreatic cancer with the Wanda's Warriors fund.
Caregiving During the Holidays

A time for warmth and celebration, the holidays can be hard for many caretakers. Cancer Care provides resources, including fact sheets, podcasts and social worker Questions & Answers, that can provide guidance for those taking care of others. You can also read our free publications on  coping with cancer and  caregiving during the holidays.
