We have been fortunate over the past 20 years to thrive because of our community of friends, volunteers, and donors, both private and corporate, who have enabled us to continue to do what we do best – help cancer patients and their families learn how to live with cancer – 100% free of charge. We remain indebted to you, our loyal supporters, who believe as we do that no one should face cancer alone.
Every year the number of New Yorkers newly diagnosed with cancer increases and every year our program has been growing at a rate of 15-20% to meet the needs of this population. Cancer does not discriminate by age, gender, ethnic background or income. We continue to find new ways to build our program to be more accessible to those that need it most in the neighborhoods where they live. Our greatest growth has been around the city as we reach out to cancer patients at medical centers in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan and Queens with support programs not only in English, but also Spanish and Mandarin.
