new era in Cancer patient Support

The quickest support in the nation

Philadelphia police officers are working with Legacy of Hope to deliver healthy groceries every week via squad car to the homes of Philadelphia cancer patients whose families face hunger because of a cancer diagnosis. Without their support Legacy of Hope would not have the capacity to deliver healthy groceries to so many families every week.

Legacy of Hope is based in Philadelphia, and exists to provide emergency support for those fighting cancer and expedite new cures through strategic funding. Our focus is providing emergency patient support to Philadelphia’s most financially distressed cancer patients through a network made possible by partnerships with major hospitals and local organizations. Often described as the Emergency Medicine of patient support, Legacy of Hope steps in when patients and families have exhausted all other resources, and no longer have the capacity to provide themselves with basic necessities. Legacy of Hope’s funding expedites new cures by leveraging the knowledge of Philadelphia’s most experienced researchers and clinicians to select and fund Philadelphia’s brightest cancer researchers.
