World Strong - Care Packages for Cancer Patients campaign is raising funds to help provide Free Pandemic Care Packages to breast cancer patients across Queens and Long Island. This campaign is run by Rocking the Road for a Cure Inc, a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization that has been providing free wellness services for people with breast cancer for over 10 years. We understand that Cancer patients are especially vulnerable to illness during their fight due to suppression of their immune system. Most are also impacted financially due to their illness and now COVID-19. The Care Packages contain PPE (masks, gloves, eye protection glasses, sanitizer wipes and gels, creams) and Post Op supplies to keep the patients safe while driving to and from their cancer treatments. Free healthy grocery care packages are also delivered directly to patients homes by Rocking the Road for a Cure staff and volunteers. These groceries are provided by our partner People Loving People, another non-profit charity that runs The People’s Pantry.
You can help by Sponsoring a Care Package:

ANY amount can help us continue!
In just a few short months we have safely delivered over 75 Care Packages to cancer patients across Queens and Long Island and we hope to continue with the help of your donations. We receive care package recipient referrals from Northwell Health, NYU Langone, Adelphi University Breast Cancer Support Center, OSIA, Full Circle PT, and other medical practitioners and local organizations. We have teamed up with People Loving People, a non-profit charity that runs The People’s Food Pantry that assists with providing food for patients, and others that may be having financial difficulty. RTRFAC is donating 20% of the funds raised through this campaign to People Loving People.
Thanking you for your consideration, and for making the World Stronger with your support.
