We want to be a rainbow in cancer patients' stormy clouds! - Ronald J. Avery, Founder
Cancer patients and their families shouldn't have to scrape by. As an organization that helps cancer patients financially, the Avery Foundation alleviates that stress by providing grants to pay for unexpected expenses.
In 2018, we gave 17 grants for cancer patients and their families in the tri-state area. We paid for gas, meals and hotel rooms thanks to cancer donations from donors just like you.
