Advocate Program

Sharing your personal story is often an unexpected source of strength and healing for both the reader and the writer. An advocate will be able to discuss factual information and personal experiences on fighting a particular cancer. You can help Cares for Cancer, NFP continue to raise awareness for all cancers in your community while informing people in your community about us. Some things that we ask of our advocates:

  • Host or participate in at least one Cares for Cancer, NFP event per year
  • Distribute fliers to local businesses, community centers, etc.
  • Contact local media outlets regarding newsworthy items.
  • Contact local community leaders for assistance and support.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. • Ask your Human Resources or Benefits department if your company is eligible for matching gifts. If so, request a matching gift form from your employer and send it in to us, completed and signed with your gift.
