Emmanuel Cancer Foundation
The Emmanuel Cancer Foundation (ECF) provides New Jersey families facing the crisis of pediatric cancer a place to turn for comfort and support through professional in-home counseling and a uniquely tailored package of assistance – all free-of-charge.
Each year, ECF helps hundreds of families in New Jersey with a free package of support services. They assist any New Jersey family with a child who has cancer ages 0-18, regardless of race, creed, socioeconomic status, or any other demographic restriction. They continue helping the families for as long as they need it, whether it be one month or 10 years. There are no applications, forms, or other red tape for a family to deal with – they strive to make the delivery of services as quick and seamless as possible.
To date, ECF has assisted over 2000 families.
They provide professional counseling, emotional support and advocacy assistance free for the entire family.
Through four Regional Centers, they work with volunteers to collect and distribute groceries, toys, clothing, household items, and birthday and holiday gifts.
Emergency Financial Aid
Emergency financial assistance can help families with urgent needs such as paying rent, utility, phone and insurance bills.
