Who We Are

Our Mission

The Illinois CancerCare Foundation is committed to funding Research, Education and Awareness of a disease which affects 1 in 3 people. As we fight to find cures through nationally recognized research initiatives, it is our strong belief that our patients must have available to them every possible weapon in their battle. To make a difference, the Illinois CancerCare Foundation will seek support from the community by communicating these needs.

Our Commitment

The physicians and staff at Illinois CancerCare are relentless in working towards finding better treatments, therapies and ultimately cures for many forms of cancer. The clinical research trial participation currently conducted through Illinois CancerCare ranks top 10 in the nation. We strive to increase patient participation in these clinical cancer trials. In addition to supporting research, the Foundation funds education and awareness programs and patient support and assistance programs.
