Most of us realize how Cancer affects peoples lives. Most see the medical affects of the person going through this horrible disease, but the financial impact isn't so obvious.

The Cancer Alliance allows cancer patients to go thru the treatment needed, without the worries of how they will pay for their health insurance, rent, electric, child care. This grass roots organization, founded by Charlie and Jean Fischer, is committed to assisting cancer patients with these expenses. All monies raised stays in Palm Beach County and is there for our neighbors. If you live in an surrounding county, but are treated in Palm Beach County, the Cancer Alliance is here for you!

In my four years of being a part of the Cancer Alliance, I have seen first hand the commitment of the organization, its board members and support from the community to truly make a difference.

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the work that theJean Fischer and the Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope is doing in Palm Beach County. Unfortunately, this year, I lost a friend to Cancer that was a single mom and trying to make ends meet while she battled this terrible disease. Jean Fischer and the Cancer Alliance were there to provide financial assistance as well as to give emotional and social support. Jean knows quite a few people in cancer treatment circles and is an invaluable resource. I personally cannot thank her and the Cancer Alliance for everything they have and are doing to help cancer patients in their battle against this terrible disease.

The Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope meets a need in Palm Beach County that no other organization is meeting. We help cancer patients pay their everyday bills while going through treatment. We do not give money to the patient, we pay the bills directly. It's great to know the money stays local, and we are truly making a difference in the lives of patients and their families. Co-founder and Executive Director Jean Fischer, along with her husband and co-founder, have led the way in taking this organization to new heights.

After attending an event help by Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope, and learning of the role they play in the lives of cancer patients, I had to donate and volunteer! This organization does something no other organization involved with the horrendous disease, known as cancer, does; it provides much needed monetary SUPPORT to those stricken by the disease. When fighting cancer, many patients cannot provide an income, and they need assistance for critical expenses: mortgage, rent, food, etc. CAHH provides help!

I have been fortunate not to have had to use a cancer charity, but have heard from the people the Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope has helped. Imagine having to choose treatment or paying your utility bills, car payment or any of the everyday expenses that you pay without a thought, then you hear the word cancer. Cancer Alliance has helped so many people not have to worry about the basics of life. I have watched the couple who started this charity raise it from the ground up and Jean and Charlie work non-stop to be able to help those in need of this necessity. I believe there are 7 events scheduled this month alone to help raise money for this need in the community.

I have been involved with the Cancer Alliance for 10 years. It is great to see an organization grow but still have the same values we have had since the beginning. And, to have a board member with our organization that we helped several years ago is priceless. Knowing where each dollar goes is so important, and meeting individuals we have helped is what drives us all to continue.

I have been involved with the Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope for over nine years. I have watched us grow from a small organization to one now that had tremendous potential in our area. It is important to our community to have us, as we assist the most needy with their everyday living expenses that keep cancer patients in their homes with electricity. Seems so basic, but when you are forced with the choice of that and your treatments, which one would you choose?? So many of us involved have been helping for years, and it is amazing to see the dedication.

It is with great pleasure that I endorse the Cancer Alliance Of Help And Hope, Inc. nonprofit in Tequesta, Florida as it is one of the many charities that I raise money for and help to promote. This organization is actively involved in good work benefiting the community and the majority of the money remains in the organization, which is important. The organization has a strong following and is highly credentialed in the non-profit sector. The recruitment of quality volunteers from the community benefits the growth and I would highly recommend this charity to individuals searching to contribute resources to benefit the community and ongoing awareness of cancer.

Love the work that this organization provides for people undergoing treatments and are challenged in keeping up with non medical bills that keep piling up. They have helped save homes, cars and everyday bills that can't be paid. They can clear payments within a few days and have so many in our community with over one million dollars in aid. Great job!

I have worked as a volunteer for CAHH for the last 3 years and am now honored to be a part of this fantastic organization as a board member. The CAHH is an amazing organization that does what few other organizations do - assist those suffering from cancer with their non-medical bills, such as their mortgage, car payment, etc., so that they can concentrate on getting well without the worry of where the money will come from to pay their other bills. I feel so blessed to have been able to see so many lives touched by this organization...Keep up the great work!
