What an amazing mission! Hearts United Against Cancer brings joy and helps to uplift thousands of men, women, and children undergoing cancer treatment. I have requested to have bundles sent to three different individuals, and each one has been beautifully personalized and lovingly put together. This organization is outstanding!

I My sister is fighting a horrific colon cancer, for the past 2 1/2 yrs. These ladies have come out to my Thomas Jefferson Hospital's Kimmel Center & given her blankets and baskets and just the cutest and heartfelt items. Each item is placed with Love in these baskets. And it is truly felt. I remember the 2nd time they came. And they asked if she'd like the blanket basket or something else. My sister said, "well, I already have a blanket, but I'd really like another, for my son". The ladies' hearts lit up right through their eyes. They asked us about her son. Soon we all were laughing, and telling stories. We even wanted to look for a chair so they could stay longer. These ladies truly care. They are a ray of sunshine, in what could be a very bleak place. I thank you all for what you do. Please never stop❤️

January 19, 2017 I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. I few weeks later I received this incredible box filled with homemade items and letters that made me cry. Since then my neighbor was diagnosed with Hutchins lymphoma. I sent him a box. He doesn't know where it came from but talks about it all the time and the joy it brings. I attended a few events they have hosted. Hearts United Against Cancer is amazing and I cannot wait to continue to support them in the things they do! Thank you for everything!

While I was unlucky enough to get breast cancer, I was beyond words when I received a huge box, filled with homemade items, and up lifting notes. I have recovered, going on three years cancer free. Now, both my daughter and I make items to be sent to other "cancer hero's"! What joy it is to see how this organization is involved with folks across the country. I live in Montana. (They are in NJ)

In 2016 I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 39. A few days after having a bilateral mastectomy my doorbell rang and I was delivered at basket full of thoughtful gifts, a blanket and other goodies. I learned a friend of my had submitted my name to Hearts United Against Cancer. I had never heard of the organization but was so touched I looked them up. While on their website I saw they had a day where they assembled baskets and I decided to bring my three children to the event. They had a great times filling bags and decorating cards for cancer patients. A few weeks later I was at the cancer center recieving chemo when I saw Beth with Hearts United for Cancer handing out the goodie bags that had been made at the event. I brought mine home and my children were so excited to see the bag and knew right away that it was one like the ones they had helped assemble. To me it was a great example to show them full circle how meaningful it is to help others and bring a smile to someone's day. Thankfully my cancer is currently in remission but I will continue to volunteer with this organization so other cancer patients know they are not alone in their journey.

I cannot say enough about this wonderful nonprofit! Unfortunately I have reached out to them more than I care to for family and friends who were/are fighting this terrible disease. Sadly two have lost their battle and two are still fighting. The joy their comfort bundles brought to each of them was unmeasurable. When they were at their low - HUAC lifted their spirits and helped push them on. Since learning about them and seeing first hand what they do for cancer hero's, I am now a volunteer and I am so happy to be a part of this awesome group!

Thank you so much for your box of love! I am so grateful for the support and it truly has brightened up my days. I am walking around with the soft and cozy blanket wrapped around me at home. I would recommend without a blink of an eye! I also had a box sent to a friend who has cancer. I am sure he will love it!

This is an amazing charity. I work a few states away from my mom battling metastatic breast cancer, so I'm unable to be her primary caregiver. I heard about this organization through a friend and really wasn't expecting much, but I filled out a form so a care package could be sent to my mom. Sure enough, it got to her about two weeks later - two packages full of goodies that fit her interests and hobbie to a tee. She was OVERWHELMED with how thoughtful and kind it was. It came with a handwritten note that really helped, too.

I am so struck that people this loving and gracious exist. Thank you so much, HUAC, for being there for my mom when I am unable to.

This is an amazing organization.. I've been able to send care packages to so many people I know, who, unfortunately have cancer. There were times before I learned of HUAC, that I wanted to ship something cheerful or happy to a friend fighting cancer, but didn't always have the funds to do so. Hearts United Against Cancer asks for no fees to send these wonderful packages but they do rely on donations of items. The packages are heartfelt, and they aim to create them based on the recipients interests and hobbies. It really makes the person feel that someone took the time to think about who they are and what makes them smile. Hearts United Against Cancer is made up of wonderful, compassionate people who are freely volunteering their time and efforts to bring some cheer and smiles to cancer patients.

I read about HUAC in a newspaper article and when I wanted to send some cheer to a friend fighting cancer, I remembered this wonderful organization. I've requested 2 bundles so far. One for my friend & one for a lady I only knew through my mom knowing her. What a wonderful way to spread cheer to folks, OF ALL AGES, who are in the fight of their life. It really brings them some encouragement. It's nice to be able to do this. HUAC doesn't waste any time on deliveries either. It doesn't take long before these bundles of love are delivered. It really is unfortunate to know ANYONE with cancer, but thankfully, Hearts United Against Cancer, is there to deliver smiles.

A friend had postee this group on Facebook. I checked out the website and was amazed. This group provides a basket to cancer patients. I put in for one for a friend and it was HAND delivered a week later. My newly diagnosed friend really had her spirits lifted. And all of this is free, but you are able to make a donation if you so choose.
