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. Our Cancer Fund was established when we saw a gap in cancer services in southwest Missouri - travel assistance. At United Way of the Ozarks, our fund helps patients and families pay for travel for treatment.

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


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.
