Each year, the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation helps hundreds of families in New Jersey with a free package of support services. Any child is eligible, and there are no applications, forms, or other red tape for a family to deal with – we strive to make the delivery of our services as seamless and quick as we can.
To date, ECF has assisted almost 2000 families.
ECF families come from all over the state, and kids range in age from birth to young adults. They are diagnosed with a variety of types of cancer, but the most prevalent are leukemia, brain tumors, and neuroblastoma. Referrals can be made by anyone, but many come from pediatric oncology units in hospitals in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware.

ECF has helped me tremendously with the support of my Caseworker, Eileen, as well as the volunteers with the holiday wish lists and in making sure Ty had a wonderful birthday every year. And when times were really hard, ECF helped out with meals and food. I don’t think I would have made it through without having to talk to someone who understood. Thank you ECF–Theresa Godfrey, Ty’s mom
During my daughter’s illness we received some support through national organizations but nothing compared to the support Emmanuel Cancer Foundation has given us. We are truly blessed to be on the receiving end of the generous outpour from your organization. From gifts throughout the year that brought smiles, groceries to help ease the financial burden; to a friendly face stopping by to check on us has greatly helped to lift our enormous burden.–Sophia Roman’s mom
Thank you so much for everything you have done for us over the years. We really appreciate all the food you’ve sent for us during Thanksgiving, all the gifts during Christmas and all the birthday things you have sent. We also appreciate the help you are giving us and we thank you for it. You are our personal angel and we are grateful we have you in our lives
I would like to say thank you the ECF for all you have done for our family for the past 18 months and a big thank you to Amy. Cancer is never easy to deal with, it makes it more bearable when you have so much support. Thank you again… Our daughter Juliana and our family is so thankful!
