Cancer Action is dedicated to reducing distress and promoting well-being for those at all stages of their cancer journey.
How You Can Help
We depend on the generosity of individuals, families and businesses in our community.
For more than 60 years, our caring staff and volunteers have served thousands of Kansas Citians.
Cancer Action is an independent, community based non-profit agency offering an array of programs and services addressing the physical, social, emotional and financial needs of persons with cancer, their family, and friends.
As a caring community of professionals and volunteers, we offer support, education, empowerment, hope and comfort to those touched by cancer. Cancer Action programs and services are free of charge.
"When you see clients walk in devastated and lost and don't even know where to start, and an hour later they walk out the door they have a smile on their face. They hug the case manager and they have a whole different outlook."
