Small Cures

It’ll be a huge day when they find a cure for cancer. 
Until then, there’s us.

The majority of cancer fundraising is focused on the massive goal of finding ‘the cure'. It’s a good, noble thing to do. And we can’t wait until it happens.

But what about all the people who are struggling with the cost of living with cancer right now? That’s right – the financial burden of cancer can be almost as devastating as the physical and emotional parts. And nobody seems to be talking about it.

Small Cures is inspired by the personal experience of our friend Kandie Wong. After being diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in 2015, she soon realized that the disease affects all aspects of life – including adding lots of financial stress. Kandie received tremendous support from family and friends, and now her wish is to help others in a similar situation.

Cancer patients need a cure for worrying about money while they should be focusing on getting better. A cure for lost wages because they can’t work. A cure for bills that keep coming in. A cure for hospital parking fees, for medications that aren’t covered, and for making sure there’s food on the table.

We’re big believers that small contributions can create huge impacts. No matter the size of your donation, it will make an enormous difference in the everyday life of someone living with cancer. ____________________________________________________
