Our Vision

CanCare envisions a world where no one faces cancer alone

CanCare envisions a world where no one faces cancer alone. We provide Hope and healing to the cancer community by ensuring anyone facing cancer can have a survivor by their side.

Over the past 33 years, CanCare has made an incredible impact on the cancer community. We have provided hope to thousands through one-to-one emotional support and visitations to those facing cancer in hospitals and treatment centers.  

CanCare supported a record-setting number of cancer patients and caregivers in 2022 and again in 2023. CanCare is achieving remarkable results, including a 24% increase in matches for cancer patients and caregivers, a 62% rise in support group participation, and a 32% increase in trained volunteers.
