Forward Your Involvement

We’re excited about transforming lives and we hope you are too. Donor support helps thousands of cancer patients receive specialized treatment through our FitSteps for Life® program. We’re reaching more patients than ever before, and with your help, even more cancer patients will benefit from your support.

Together, we are changing lives daily. Patients are achieving things they never thought were possible. Your support ensures that this program, the only known program of its kind, continues to heal those affected by cancer both physically and psychologically.

Cancer Foundation For Life® is recognized as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. To maintain the free program, the Foundation is funded by physicians, hospitals, family foundations, grants, and individual donors.
