Mission

The mission of the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation is to provide New Jersey families faced with pediatric cancer a place to turn for comfort and support through professional in-home counseling and a uniquely tailored package of assistance.

 

We offer 24-7 counseling for the entire family, advocacy on behalf of the families with insurance companies, medical providers, landlords, etc.; material support such as food, clothing, toys, household items and birthday and holiday gifts; and emergency financial relief.

ECF is unique among the multitude of organizations focusing on cancer–while there are many searching for a cure for cancer and others that grant one-time wishes or provide support while in the hospital, we help families with their day-to-day needs, at home, where families feel isolated and miss the supportive network found in a medical setting.

 

ECF recognizes that every one of our families has a unique experience so we offer a complete package of support tailored to each family’s needs.

Who We Help

Each year, the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation helps hundreds of families in New Jersey with a free package of support services. We assist any New Jersey family with a child who has cancer ages 0-18, regardless of race, creed, socioeconomic status, or any other demographic restriction. We continue helping the families for as long as they need us, whether it be one month or 10 years. There are no applications, forms, or other red tape for a family to deal with – we strive to make the delivery of our services as quick and seamless as possible.

 

To date, ECF has assisted over 2000 families.

ECF families come from all over the state, and kids range in age from birth to young adults. They are diagnosed with a variety of types of cancer, but the most prevalent are leukemia, brain tumors, and neuroblastoma. Referrals can be made by anyone, but many come from pediatric oncology units in hospitals in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware.
