Membership program

benefits of being a member

Each day in Philadelphia, cancer is being fought on two fronts: those working around the clock to find new cures and therapies, and those with cancer who are fighting to make it to their next anniversary, birthday, or simply to watch their children grow up. Cancer has affected all of us all; becoming a Legacy of Hope member is the perfect way to help.

Your support makes a difference.  Each month, 96 cancer patients receive  fresh fruit and vegetables as well as meat and dairy products,  to feed their families for 2 weeks.  Your ongoing support means that patients don’t have to choose between buying medications or feeding their children.  It means one big burden is lifted from their shoulders so they can focus on their health and wellness.  For a small monthly contribution, you can be a part of the solution at a time when this world needs a glimmer of hope.
Legacy of Hope members are people who care about eliminating hunger and homelessness for cancer patients and who want to find a cure for all cancer.   For a small monthly fee, our members support programs that in turn, support our patients.  Members receive discounts at an ever growing list of participating businesses.  Members also receive VIP benefits at Legacy of Hope including engagement opportunities, special access to events and the satisfaction that you are doing your part to improving the lives of those fighting cancer in your community. 
Every dollar makes a difference, become a founding member today.
