Founded in 1944, CancerCare® is the leading national organization providing free support services and information to help people manage the emotional, practical and financial challenges of cancer. Our comprehensive services include counseling and support groups over the phone, online and in-person, educational workshops, publications and financial and co-payment assistance. All CancerCare services are provided by professional oncology social workers.
CancerCare helps 1,000,000 people each year throughout the U.S. and distributes more than $30 million in financial and co-payment assistance. The size and scope of CancerCare has grown tremendously since 1944, but the mission remains the same—to provide help and hope to anyone affected by cancer.
