When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.

The Cancer Hope Network community is full of helpers – volunteers, partners and champions who share their time, their stories and their resources. Each fall, as October brings cancer top-of-mind to the wider world and holiday preparations start lengthening to-do lists, people ask for MORE ways they can help and support CHN. 

Below, you’ll find a few practical ways to help the (Cancer Hope) helpers.  

Give to the Garden if Hope.

Honor a loved one – A gift to our Garden of Hope is a meaningful way to celebrate a friends currently fighting or a loved one taken too soon. It’s also a meaningful holiday gift for the “person who has everything.” Each honoree will be mailed a Legacy of Hope tribute card and your digital message added to our online garden.  

Shop Amazon Smile and support us.

Shop Amazon Smile – Designate CHN as your charity to support on Amazon Smile and a portion of each purchase will come to CHN.

Help us by hosting a fundraiser.

Host a fundraising event – Gather friends for a paint or pottery class, a virtual game night or set a fitness goal and keep track of your progress through Just Giving or help by creating a Facebook fundraiser (CHN pays no processing fees for gifts made through FB. 

Support us by visiting our store.

Visit our store  – What better way to help spread the word about CHN and support us than rocking a CHN t-shirt, delivering Halloween treats in a CHN tote or sipping a cozy drink from one of our mugs? Each purchase helps fund our hope-creating work.

Help by telling a friend.

Tell a friend or introduce us to your healthcare team – Encourage a friend to become a volunteer (cancerhopenetwork.org/volunteer) or share our free materials with your oncologist or social worker.
