The Cancer Resource Center is a small non-profit serving the Finger Lakes area of New York. Our motto is "no one should face cancer alone" and we welcome ANYONE affected by cancer to use any of our services FREE of charge.
With a small staff of 5 people we create a community of care with 9 regular support groups, one-on-one assistance, financial advocacy, an Angel fund to help pay a cancer survivor's bill or medical equipment, transportation assistance, free wigs and breast prosthesis, and wellness and exercise classes. We also have an extensive library of books, DVDs, and pamphlets about cancer, with information and coping strategies.
We rely solely on grants, contracts, fundraising and donations. Due to COVID-19 we have had to cancel major fundraising events and donations have dropped. Our campaign goal is to fill the gap over the next 3 months for the loss of income so that we can continue to provide our support groups and other important services virtually through online platforms.
Thank you for your support!
