Care for Cancer Foundation

exists to increase national access to cancer treatment care and support


As a first step, we create pathways for patients to access much needed targeted therapies, which can help with one disease or many. We form partnerships with physicians, industry and governments, along with the patients themselves to enable access solutions. Next, we work with physicians around disease education, identifying patient leaders and forming patient groups. Finally, we provide capacity building to leaders and patient organizations; partnering with them to bring dignity and hope to people facing cancer, no matter where they live.
