MISSION

To improve the lives of cancer patients, their families, and the community.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Our vision is a community where every cancer patient gets the services they need to thrive.

We hold our volunteers and board members to the highest of Values:

Holistic Healing. Mind. Body. Spirit.

We help the whole you – we believe it is your uniqueness, a blend of your mind, body and soul which make the whole greater than its parts.

Optimism

We believe that you are a cancer survivor the day you are diagnosed. We believe that hope and optimism (for a patient with any stage of cancer) are as essential to your recovery as the medicine you receive.

Passion

We are passionate that each and every cancer patient get the same opportunity for quality cancer care regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, education level, or geography.

Empowerment

A new cancer diagnosis or cancer recurrence can be overwhelming; we will help lessen the fear and anxiety by improving your knowledge and providing assistance when you have chosen your plan.
