Resources       

Below, you will find a comprehensive listing of cancer-related websites.  Some of these are small local groups while others are high profile national organizations. Please know that this list is NOT vetted.  We're frequently asked by other nonprofits to include their links on our page.  We've also spotted organizations in the media that sound as though they might be useful to cancer patients.  In the interest of serving as broad resource, we add everything we learn of to the listing. We have regular contact with only a handful of these groups.  Please be a cautious and savvy consumer of information and services as you engage with them. Take care in protecting your personal, financial and health information.  Please remember that a hospital social worker -- specifically, an Oncology Social Worker -- can be one of your best resources as you navigate your way through treatment. They can be a second set of hands, eyes, and ears when you are trying to make important decisions regarding your health and day-to-day living.

I would like to say thank you so very much to your foundation for all your help and support during my treatment time. Your help with rent and car payments for 2 months helped us more than you know. Thank you once again. ~ Guadalupe
