Caring Hearts Legacy Society

Those who thoughtfully give a gift to Cancer Action through their will or estate planning are very special people.  They help ensure that Cancer Action can continue to provide the vital services and support those living with, through and beyond cancer throughout the Kansas City area need today and in the future.  Those who thoughtfully leave a legacy gift help secure tomorrow for Cancer Action and the thousands of cancer patients we serve.

 

Gifts can be made in many different ways, through simply leaving a bequest in a will or trust, or other financial means like an insurance policy or retirement account.  Even if you think you cannot afford to make such a gift, you may be surprised to learn that even a seemingly small gift can make a huge impact. Your gift, added to those of others, can make a lasting difference.

Those who make a legacy gift to Cancer Action become a part of our Caring Hearts Legacy Society.  If you would like more information about how you might support Cancer Action, please call our office at 913-642-8885. We are always here to help.

Go the Extra Mile

Hearing the words “you have cancer” turns your world upside down. When a person hears those words, they have no idea where that journey will take them, and what to expect along the path. They only know the course of their life has been changed, altered, placing them on an unexpected, demanding, scary and often very long journey with many twists and turns.  They need a place to turn for guidance, support and help to meet the many challenges cancer brings to their life.  For six decades Cancer Action has been the place that cancer patients in our community turn to when the burdens are too heavy. 

We are there to offer support throughout their cancer journey ensuring they are not alone during this difficult time. We couldn't do it without you!

YOU have been a vital part of our success over the years! We go the extra mile to help those with cancer in our community. YOU have helped us go the extra mile, ensuring that those with cancer get the support they need, lightening their burdens and offering compassion and hope to lift their spirits along the way.

By supporting Cancer Action in our endeavors, your dollars will go to work immediately right here in the Kansas City area! We ask you to “GO THE EXTRA MILE” with us and  give a little more this year—take that extra step—to help those with cancer in our community! 

You can make a one-time tax-deductible donation or set-up a monthly gift to our Annual Campaign by clicking the button below.  Your Support Matters!
