CancerCare was founded in 1944 in New York City with the mission of helping advanced cancer patients. The lamp was chosen as the symbol for the organization because its light represented warmth, comfort and hope.

From the very beginning, CancerCare provided financial assistance for home care, as well as counseling by professional oncology social workers. By 1980, CancerCare was helping more than 25,000 people with its free counseling services, which to this day are the heart of the organization’s work.

During the 1980s and 1990s, technological advances helped the organization grow to its current national scope. The toll-free counseling line, Connect Education Workshops, and website all made CancerCare’s services available to people across the country.

Today, CancerCare has over 100 staff members who help more than 100,000 people each year cope better with cancer. Our websites have grown to become leading online resources, providing both information and support. The size and focus of the organization have grown tremendously since 1944, but the essential work is the same: caring for the individual, supporting their loved ones, and providing help and hope to anyone affected by cancer.
