“To have made even one person’s life a little better, that is to succeed.” –Thoreau


At CancerCare, our mission is simple but to achieve it is not. We must rely upon valued supporters like you who continue to make an enormous difference in the lives of people who have been impacted by cancer.

Planned giving enables you to establish a lasting legacy for the people and the causes you care about. It costs you nothing during your lifetime and provides both financial and tax advantages.

The 1944 Legacy Society was established for those who wish to support CancerCare through estate planning. Named after the year CancerCare was established, The 1944 Legacy Society is a unique way to support CancerCare through wills and trust estate plans. We invite you to be a part of this dedicated group of supporters whose legacy will ensure CancerCare’s future.

The easiest way to remember CancerCare is through a charitable bequest - a gift made to charity through your will or trust.
