Vision Statement

To improve the lives of all cancer patients. 

Values

We hold our volunteers and board members to the highest of Values:

Holistic Healing. Mind. Body. Spirit.
We help the whole you – we believe it is your uniqueness, a blend of your mind, body and soul which make the whole greater than its parts.

Optimism
We believe that you are a cancer survivor the day you are diagnosed. We believe that hope and optimism (for a patient with any stage of cancer) are as essential to your recovery as the medicine you receive.

Passion
We are passionate that each and every cancer patient get the same opportunity for quality cancer care regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, education level, or geography.

Empowerment 
A new cancer diagnosis or cancer recurrence can be overwhelming; we will help lessen the fear and anxiety by improving your knowledge and providing assistance when you have chosen your plan.

 

Your gift to the NCS Hope Foundation helps us support patients at a group and individual level. We are able to buy groceries, pay gas and electric bills for patient who are struggling with finances during their treatment. We provide gas cards and help patients get rides to treatment and other appointments.

Our annual skin cancer screening event screens over 250 participants. We have found that year over year about 34% of our participants are recommended for additional screening or biopsy of suspicious lesions.

We are planning other annual events for this fall and next spring, including a Survivorship Event and a Day of Remembrance.

Thank you for considering a gift to help cancer patients and the community.
