The Cincinnati Cancer Consortium would cease to exist without the participating members encouraging and supporting one another in the fight against cancer. Participating members will receive free access to support and resource recommendations designed to help organizations large & small produce events, market themselves and better connect with patients and providers.
Best Day Ever Foundation
Best Day Ever Foundation is committed to connecting the community of parents and families who have lost a child. We provide ways for the families to unite outside of traditional grief counseling sessions in addition to finding them the right resources and when they need it most.
Brandon C. Gromada Head & Neck Cancer Foundation
The Brandon C. Gromada Head & Neck Cancer Foundation was launched June 3, 2012 by Dr. Joseph & Karen Gromada, the day after their oldest son Brandon died of an aggressive “poorly differentiated squamous cell cancer” (SCC).
The goal of the Foundation is to generate research funds for the development of innovative and more effective treatments, which lead to cures for head and neck cancers - most of which are some type of squamous cell carcinoma.
Cancer Free Kids
CancerFree KIDS aims to find more effective and gentler treatments for childhood cancer by funding innovative research projects in the early stages of development. New ideas need money to grow, yet potential breakthrough treatment methods often go unfunded because pediatric cancer research is drastically limited. CancerFree KIDS provides grants to high-risk/high-reward childhood cancer research projects in these crucial early stages, which allows researchers to prove their concept, secure additional funding, and eventually create new treatments for kids.
Cancer Support Community
We are dedicated to ensuring that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. All programs are free of charge to anyone affected by cancer. We provide support groups, healthy lifestyle activities, educational opportunities as well as social connections.
Cincinnati Cancer Advisors
The days following a cancer diagnosis can stir feelings of uncertainty, urgency and apprehension. Cincinnati Cancer Advisors exists to improve the care of cancer patients seeking a second opinion so that they walk away with a thorough understanding of their diagnosis and confidence in their plan of care.
The Cure Starts Now
The Cure Starts Now represents something truly different – a grassroots effort dedicated to, not just fighting one cancer, but the elimination of ALL cancers. We believe as the experts do; that in order to truly cure cancer you have to focus on:
those cancers that are immune to treatment
those cancers that also affect children
and those cancers that are the biggest bullies with the highest death rate
The Erica J. Holloman Foundation for the Awareness of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer
The Erica J. Holloman Foundation Incorporated is organized exclusively for charitable, scientific, and educational purposes, more specifically to raise awareness about and seek the prevention of Triple Negative Breast Cancer.
Karen Wellington Foundation
Our mission is simple. We put FUN on the calendars of women and families LIVING with breast cancer by sending them on special vacations, relaxing spa days, concerts and other FUN-ONLY activities. Since 2007 our recipients have traded in chemo chairs and canceled plans for sunrise hikes and hot air balloon rides. Whether they are enjoying a relaxing spa day with friends or skydiving in their hometown, over 1,000 recipients have said "YES" to KWF. And we're just getting started!
Smile Books Project
Smile Books Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing smiles to children suffering from life-threatening medical conditions. We create personalized books, coloring books, posters and more to make each child the main character of their own heroic story. We also work with adults to share their wishes for their children while battling terminal illnesses as well as other nonprofits to share their missions. Proceeds from every book sold are donated to the person or organization the book was created for, after the cost of print.
