BENEFITING: CANCER ALLIANCE OF NAPLES INC
EVENT DATE: Jul 11, 2017
Cancer Alliance of Naples (CAN) is devoted to helping local children, families and individuals touched by cancer by providing financial aid, support, education and information resources. We are currently serving all of Collier and Lee Counties.
-CAN has helped over 1,400 families with over $3 million in non-medical financial support since 2002. The beneficiaries include many children of low-income single parents from Collier and Lee Counties.
-CAN also helps children referred from Golisano Children's Hospital
-CAN pays rent so cancer survivors and their families won't be evicted, utilities so they won't be turned off, gas cards so they can get to treatment and food for nourishment.
-CAN does not duplicate the services of any other agency in Collier County.
-CAN offers free group counseling and nutrition programs, an extensive library for use by anyone in the community, and college scholarships for graduating seniors who are cancer survivors.
-Every dollar raised here stays, here and is tax deductible.
