We are committed to providing direct, personalized emotional and financial support, education, and nutrition to underserved cancer patients by ensuring men, women, and children have stable homes, working utilities, gas cards, one-one support, advocacy, and care packages while undergoing cancer treatment. We ensure adults and children thrive while fighting cancer in the rural areas of Southern Illinois, Northwest Indiana, and surrounding areas.
Our organization consists of a team of cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers. Through our experiences and the shared experiences of others, we saw the need for additional support after leaving the cancer treatment center for both the patient and the caregiver. We saw the importance of supporting the entire community of the cancer patient. Fighting Cancer Today was created to bridge the gap between the treatment patients receive versus the support needed when home.
