Imagine hearing the words “you have cancer” and knowing you and your loved ones won’t have to endure the experience alone. Imagine receiving the personalized support you need during every single step of your journey, including navigating your changed life as a survivor. Imagine knowing that your support system, including children, will also receive individualized care and support. Cancer Care Services ensures that no one has to cope with cancer alone. Our professional team delivers innovative navigation & knowledge to reduce the trauma and distress of cancer.

Cancer Care Services offers personalized assistance and advocacy for cancer patients, caregivers, and survivors at no cost:

  • Imparting knowledge about topics intended to strengthen clients’ self-sufficiency, well-being, and access to cancer resources and healthcare

Giving Activity


Cancer Care Services supports cancer patients, cares for caregivers, and empowers survivors to reduce the impact of cancer in Tarrant County.

The agency was founded in 1946 in Fort Worth. Cancer Care Services is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves everyone impacted by cancer in Tarrant County: all ages, cancer types, and income levels. Thanks to our donors, we provide all services at NO COST to our clients. In 2022, Cancer Care experienced a 17% increase in clients served.


Cancer is the leading cause of death in Tarrant County, and cancer will affect 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in their lifetime. Cancer also disproportionately devastates communities of color. Black men and women have the highest death rate and shortest survival of any racial group for most cancers, and cancer is the leading cause of death among Hispanics.

Now that COVID has changed our world, can you imagine not knowing that you have something equally deadly: CANCER? The harsh reality is that there were 46% fewer cancer diagnoses in 2020 than in the previous year because screenings came to a screeching halt. The result will be an increase in cancer diagnoses once screenings resume, and the need for Cancer Care Services will rise exponentially.

Your support means help and hope for those coping with cancer. We will continue providing our standard programs, services, and emergency funds (rent, utilities, groceries, etc.). Non-emergency financial assistance requests (health insurance, medication, transportation, and nutrition support) will increase as more people are screened and diagnosed with cancer. Our counselors have waiting lists due to mental health strain, our social workers are providing more in-depth case management, and our community health workers are expanding our outreach into underserved communities. We have to grow!

Your gift will help meet the needs of our community now, as well as the inevitable influx of newly diagnosed cancer patients (and their caregivers!) in the future.
