Cancer doesn’t only affect the person with cancer; it affects the lives of the people who surround them as well. Whether you’re a patient or a caregiver to your child or partner, a family member or a loved one, cancer affects your life in ways never imagined. Responsibilities don’t simply stop with a diagnosis. In fact, they’re more complicated and burdensome than ever. Time constraints and the physical toll of cancer can make simply keeping the home clean seem daunting. The Cancierge Foundation is here to help. While many of our services are directed to those diagnosed with cancer, they can also be a much needed lifeline for caregivers.

Real People, Real Help
The Cancierge Foundation was created by individuals who have been personally affected by cancer — losing a wife, a husband, a mother, a best friend. We have come together and dedicated ourselves and the foundation to provide services for cancer patients’ needs and to improve the quality of their lives. By raising funds and working collaboratively with the Cancer Wellness House, Cancierge will make available personalized assistance by connecting services and resources to cancer patients and their families.
