A Family In Need:

Families Facing Cancer

Empowering families in their courageous fight against cancer

A Family In Need is dedicated to supporting families dealing with the overwhelming challenges of cancer, regardless of who in the family is affected. We are focused on easing the financial and emotional burdens that accompany a cancer diagnosis. Recognizing that cancer impacts every member of the family, our support extends to covering a variety of expenses. This includes groceries, home bills, and medical bills, with a particular emphasis on the unique circumstances of each individual family. For those grappling with the high costs of medical treatment, including transportation and accommodation during hospital stays, A Family In Need is here to offer a compassionate helping hand.

Moreover, we celebrate the milestones of remission and overcoming cancer by providing much needed and restorative family vacations. To honor these moments, we offer restorative family vacations, designed to foster joy and create precious, lasting memories. These vacations are a way to celebrate resilience and recovery, providing a much-needed respite and time for family bonding. In addition, we host a seasonal toy drive to foster cheer and joy within families struggling with the realities of childhood cancer.

The support of our local communities is crucial in this endeavor. Every contribution, no matter how small, can make a significant difference in the lives of these families. At A Family In Need, we believe that a little bit of help goes a long way in providing relief and hope to families facing the challenges of cancer. Together, we can make a meaningful impact and offer a pillar of strength to lean on during these trying times.



We take care of your bills, including medical expenses, rent/mortgage, insurance, utilities, and more so you can focus on your health. We lift financial burdens during this tough time.
