We Provide Hope
To Those in Need

Help us create a better today for cancer warriors undergoing chemo.

Our Mission

For Cancer Warriors undergoing chemotherapy, we provide Chemo Care Kits. We believe these kits inspire, uplift, and help our community thrive during this challenging time. 100% of all donations to Beyond Basic Needs goes to fulfilling these kits at no cost to the recipient.

In addition, we connect those in need to the technology that makes it easy to manage and get help for basic services including food delivery, cleaning services, transportation services and other basic needs at no charge to the individual. We believe these services are imperative to improving the quality of life after a medical event.

A Message From Our Founder

I’m Rachel Minion, the co-founder of Beyond Basic Needs.

I was diagnosed with Cancer of the Appendix seven years ago in my mid-thirties. The minute you hear the word cancer, your life changes in ways only a cancer warrior can describe. Not only did it change for me, but for my entire support network.

After I recovered, I dedicated my life to helping other cancer warriors and friends in my support network. 

In our attempt to change the world, my husband and I created Beyond Basic Needs to help our community thrive.

Each donation of just $25 buys a kit that contains a pillow, comfy socks, lip balm, and a variety of goodies that these warriors deserve.
