Our Envisioned Future

A world without cancer! Cares for Cancer, NFP strives to assist patients and their families who have become financially distressed as a result of their courageous fight against cancer and other illnesses. Assistance in Healthcare eases those burdens by providing grants to patients and their families to help defray their non-medical bills.

Application for Assistance

Our goal is to provide some financial support and guidance for qualified patients and their families while battling cancer. We are dedicated to helping to ease their financial challenges. To print out a grant application, click here.

We are a not-for-profit organization that operates mainly on fundraising and donations. Cares for Cancer, NFP will consider all requests for assistance, based on our current budget. We will have different grant opportunities throughout the year, based on specific donors’ requirements. We may be able to assist a family more than once within a twelve month period, however, capping out at $1,200 value in services or monetary donations per year. If additional assistance is needed, please remember to consider reaching out to your social workers at your hospital or other not-for-profit organizations.



“On behalf of my family, we just want to say “Thank You” to Cares for Cancer, NFP. It was unbelievable how much they helped us; they took a burden off of my shoulders with helping me pay my July mortgage. This gave me more time to think of me getting better than worrying about how the mortgage is going to be paid. They just didn’t help me but also my wife because having cancer is so much of a burden on her as well. There are no other words I could say but Thank You, Thank You, Thank You so much and may God bless you and your organization. God put you in my journey and in this walk to get better and keep being strong. Thanks to Cares for Cancer, NFP for giving me that opportunity. God bless you”- George Trejo

“On April 5, 2019 Anthony’s Avengers Defeat DIPG Foundation hosted the 2nd Annual Reach For The Stars Fundraiser at Gaelic Park, in Oak Forest, IL. Cares for Cancer, NFP generously purchased a table for $600 at our event. They have been a great means of support to our cause. All money raised at this event goes directly towards funding research grants and fellowships that are specific to DIPG. We are so grateful for the continued support from foundations like Cares for Cancer, NFP. Together, we can find a cure”- Anthony’s Avengers
