About Illinois CancerCare Foundation

No One Fights Alone

Since 2001, that’s been the mantra at the Illinois CancerCare Foundation. They want every cancer patient to have every weapon available in the battle against this disease.

Most families have many children, Their our work is about more than money. It’s about bringing feet to the fight, engaging people in the cause and inspiring them to take action.

Mission Statement

The Illinois CancerCare Foundation is committed to funding Research, Education, Patient Support and Assistance for a disease which affects 1 in 3 people.

As we fight to find cures for many types of cancers through nationally recognized research initiatives, it is our strong belief that our patients must have available to them every possible weapon in their battle. The Illinois CancerCare Foundation seeks charitable support from throughout central and western Illinois to accomplish these objectives.

Offering Hope

The Illinois CancerCare Foundation supports patients and their families dealing with a cancer diagnosis throughout central and western Illinois—covering a metropolitan service area of more than one million people.

About The Illinois CancerCare Foundation

The Illinois CancerCare Foundation is a charitable organization like no other in our community.

While one hundred percent of the funds granted are used in our region to support cancer research, education, and patient support, the impact of our services resounds globally.  

Our foundation, in collaboration with Illinois CancerCare, helps bring the latest nationally renowned clinical cancer research trials right here to our community – giving cancer patients and their families greater access to advanced treatment options and greater HOPE close to home!
