A Florida Keys Foundation
The seed for the Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys was first planted by members of cancer support groups in Key West. Recognizing the need for emotional, financial and educational assistance for cancer patients who are living in the Florida Keys, a letter was sent to members of the Monroe County community asking them to join in forming a keys-wide Cancer Foundation. Not surprising, the response was overwhelming and the rest, as they say, is history.
To offer assistance to qualified cancer patients living in the Florida Keys, and to aid them in their quest for education and treatment for their disease, in whatever way possible, whenever possible.
The goal of the Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys is to assist qualified patients while undergoing treatment when other financial sources of assistance have been denied or exhausted.
We strive to generate funds through charitable organizations, community involvement and fundraising events from public donors.
We work to sustain a positive public image through education, outreach, and timely communication. We strive to provide wise, appropriate and timely aid to cancer patients of any age, persuasion, or race.
Qualification for financial assistance is based on income eligibility.
Helping residents of the Florida Keys in their quest to learn ways to treat and pay for this dreaded and expensive disease has become the rallying cry of the Foundation. All of the funds raised by the Cancer Foundation are used to assist cancer patients in the Florida Keys community.
We had an employee who was diagnosed with Cancer. The Cancer Foundation was able to provide financial assistance for his living expenses (rent, utilities). As a local business owner, I wanted to help. The Cancer Foundation helps the community. I am happy to help fund raise throughout the year.
The Cancer Foundation of Foundation of the Florida Keys helped me in my time of need. I am grateful and thankful that there is a nonprofit in Key West that does the work they do.
Every time I stop by a Circle K I see the Cancer Foundation donation jar and drop my extra change it, because I know, “What They Raise…Stays! ”
