Cancer Support Community of Greater St. Louis

St. Louis Men’s Group Against Cancer helps Cancer Support Community provide weekly, bimonthly and monthly support groups for people with cancer, their friends and family, and people who have lost someone to cancer.  Our members share with us that through participation in these programs they gain peace during uncertainty; connection during times of loneliness; and inspiration when hope seems lost.  Support Groups, educational workshops, healthy lifestyle classes and social programs at Cancer Support Community are all offered at no charge for anyone affected by cancer.

Friends of Kids with Cancer

The grant from the STLMGAC will enable Friends of Kids with Cancer to increase our Emotional Programs, particularly our Grief Support Groups. Grief Support Groups give these families the tools they need to openly express and deal with their feelings.

The December 5th Fund’s mission is to give back a day without worry, a day without the normal burdens that many take for granted. Our organization creates unique 1-day experiences for families to enjoy while our team of volunteers are back at their home tackling those everyday chores that get ignored while you're caring for someone with cancer. Funding will go towards our new Helping Hands Support Program. This program provides continuous support around the house for a family while their loved one goes through cancer treatment. With our support plan in place, the family will never have to worry about a clean house, unkempt lawn, or missed meal again while their loved one is going through treatment.

Joshua's Great Things

We know how hard it is to have a child receiving treatment for brain cancer and our family support program is set up to help families with some of their basic needs. Funds received will go directly to providing gift cards to families who have a child receiving treatment for brain cancer. Parents can choose what type of gift card would best meet their needs – gas station, grocery store, and/or a child’s favorite restaurant. We want families to be able to make the most of the time they have with their children during these difficult times.

Maryville University's Kids Rock Cancer

Your support for Kids Rock Cancer helps Maryville University provide free music therapy sessions for children diagnosed with cancer and other blood disorders, and for kids whose loved ones are battling cancer.
