Mission

Cancer Aid and Research Fund is an national/international organization that provides information & assistance to the general public concerning cancer & other degenerative diseases & provides grants and medical supplies and equipment to hospitals and clinics that treat cancer and other degenerative diseases. Since 1989 the Cancer Aid and Research Fund has been focusing on the challenge of providing aid and support to programs working to find a cure for cancer. CARF believes that support groups for cancer patients are a vital part of their treatment and rehabilitation. CARF's efforts are directed at making these support groups available. Working with the victims of cancer, providing educational, emotional and spiritual support is at the core of our programs. As an organization that is totally dependent on public support, CARF looks for the most cost effective ways to provide vital educational materials about nutrition, integrative and alternative treatments for cancer and other degenerative diseases. CARF ships containers of medical supplies, medical equipment and humanitarian aid to hospitals and clinics in 3rd world countries that treat cancer and other degenerative diseases. These hospitals and clinics are in desperate need of supplies and equipment.

What we aim to solve

The Board of Directors and the management team have been actively pursuing fundraising personnel to assist CARF in its fundraising efforts. Raising enough money to meet the yearly budget is a great problem. Expanding programs to assist more cancer patients is a goal of CARF.

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Providing on-going funding for research and programs that promote and utilize alternative therapies in the treatment of cancer and other terminal diseases. To increase our position of supplying much needed equipment, medical supplies and medicines to hospitals and clinics both in the United States and Internationally. These supplies will many times mean the difference between life and death for the patients of the hospitals and clinics. To continue to provide emergency information to victims of cancer; so that they might make an informed decision on how and where to treat their illness. In addition, to provide ongoing emotional, spiritual and financial support to victims of cancer whenever possible. To continue providing educational materials so as to increase the awareness of alternative therapies and the treatment of cancer. The opportunities for helping individuals with cancer are many—the resources are limited.

We are actively pursuing fundraising personnel to assist CARF in its fundraising efforts. We are forming a network of organization to help us promote our goals. We also are developing a network of social media platforms to share our information to as many people as possible.

We have recently been talking to consultants that can expand our message on social media. WE believe as more people are made aware of our efforts to find a cure for cancer they will contribute.

By measuring the revenue against past years and evaluating the number of cancer patients being helped.

We have hired a consultant to help us set up social media outreaches and apply us into fundraising events.
