Why Kay Supports CancerCare 

"I have benefited from CancerCare's services tremendously, and I owe a lot of it to my social worker, Angelique. From helping me navigate the medical knowledge, to emotional support, their services have been so important. CancerCare is one of the few organizations that focus on patients and families with cancer."
CancerCare client Kay recently started a Facebook Fundraiser with the goal of raising $2,000. She ended up raising over $20,000 for CancerCare's free supportive services. Read more of Kay's story.

Cancer Care ® is the leading national organization dedicated to providing free, professional support services including counseling, support groups, educational workshops, publications and financial assistance to anyone affected by cancer. All Cancer Care services are provided by oncology social workers and world-leading cancer experts.
