Embrace A Family is a non-profit volunteer based organization dedicated to providing Natick families, struggling with cancer, direct access to a network of support and information. All of the funds raised are used to help families defray some of the emotional and financial hardships incurred when faced with a cancer diagnosis and its treatment.
Embrace A Family supports Natick families who are incurring overwhelming hardships due to a cancer diagnosis by:
Providing financial support for non-medical expenses such as transportation, groceries, child care, utility bill assistance, and other expenses that can ease the strain on a family battling cancer.
Offering preventive care, for example, by giving women easy access to a mammogram at the annual Dana-Farber Mobile Mammography Van event in Natick.
Sharing support and resource information such as nutrition, web links, and local support groups run by licensed professionals.
