"To raise the level of consciousness about and to increase the awareness of cancer through education and to provide a wide range of services and support for patients, survivors and family members dealing with cancer."
Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S., Inc. was founded in 1996 in recognition of a need and desire to provide assistance to residents of Glen Cove and our neighboring communities coping with the crisis of cancer, and to provide educational outreach to help combat its spread. We are a non-for-profit, non-sectarian, non-salaried corporation, which seeks to provide access to the counseling and early detection services to all residents in need.
Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S., Inc. is separate and apart from any other cancer organization. We receive no government funds and depend on gifts, grants and contributions from the public, including individuals, foundations and corporations. These funds are received through private donations and a variety of fund raising activities.
This organization is dedicated to providing these services, not only by providing financial assistance, but also by acting as a clearing house and referral center for the many volunteers in our community who wish to help in the fight against cancer.
Every successful step we take benefits you or someone you know...
Our volunteers and supporters are the key to our success. The Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. network of volunteers and supporters are a diverse group; our common thread is the desire to end cancer in our lifetime.
