Cancer


A statistic we know way too well: Cancer is the second-leading cause of death worldwide. Also, at least one-third of common cancers are preventable.

Chances are that either you or someone you know has been affected by cancer. United Way of the Ozarks wants you to know that we are here to help. If you would like to donate to this fund, see below for specifics. If you're a cancer patient who needs assistance, please call United Way of the Ozarks (417-863-7700) for information on an application and qualifications. Our applications are distributed through Community Partnership of the Ozarks. 

Since July 2018, United Way of the Ozarks has helped more than 27 cancer patients amounting to more than $6,775.

You can help, too. Donations are accepted year-round to support our cancer fund by either:
texting the word

Or by sending a check to our offices at
320 N. Jefferson, Springfield, MO 65806.

Thank you to those who can help. Thank you to those supporting loved ones.
