 We know there will be a cure for cancer. It is not a matter of if, but a matter of when. But we don't just hope for it, we work for it, by supporting local research teams who have committed their lives saving others. These doctors and researchers have been touched by cancer, moved by the stories they hear every day, and are relentless in their efforts to conquer cancer.

Today the cancer community needs healing, and compassion, and support. We need to ensure that there are free resources available to cancer patients and families traveling the cancer journey. From yoga class to Chinese brushstroke painting, support groups for family members to a welcoming place to stay, these services are a critical component to conquer cancer.


Some people call Boston the epicenter of the fight against cancer.
We call it home. 

With your help in 2014 we raised over $130,000 and were able to partner with local resources that are the foundation of our Hope & Healing initiative. Here's a sample.
