How CancerCARE made the difference

This is Cassandra, the daughter of the founder. At age 29, she was diagnosed with a rare late-stage lung cancer. Through CancerCARE, she had access to national resources and treatment options beyond what her local provider had to offer. A year later, she officially became cancer free.

How We've Helped

“Struggles turn us into people we didn’t know we could be, and cancer is no different. CancerCARE saved my life when I was misdiagnosed with lymphoma weeks after my cervical cancer diagnosis. They helped me turn my struggle into grace, strength, and knowledge to fight back. And that is an empowering combination.
