R. A. Bloch Cancer Foundation exists to help the next person diagnosed with cancer have the best chance of beating the disease. All services of R. A. Bloch Cancer Foundation and the Bloch Cancer Hotline 1-800-433-0464 are FREE.
In 1978, Richard Bloch, co-founder of H & R Block, Inc., was diagnosed with “terminal” lung cancer. With the help of his wife, Annette, doctors who said he could beat the cancer, and his own determination, Bloch waged a bitter two-year war on the insidious disease. So dramatic was his fight and recovery that Bloch and his wife devoted their lives to helping people who have been diagnosed with cancer. They founded R. A. Bloch Cancer Foundation with this in mind.

+1-800-433-0464 is the number for every newly diagnosed cancer patient. It is a totally free service (cash donations are never solicited) operated by volunteers who have had cancer. The goal is to match up the newly diagnosed patient with an individual who has recovered from the same type of cancer. The purpose is not to recommend specific treatments or physicians, but to figuratively put their arm aroundthe new patient and help them make the myriad of decisions they will have to make if they are going to have a chance to beat this disease.
