The Problem

Once someone receives a cancer diagnosis, they need support, but don’t have the energy to accept that support, which makes you feel helpless.

The Solution

We believe that basic needs are not basic. We understand the strength of the community needed to be able to support someone during this challenging time, which is why we started Beyond Basic Needs.

Cancer warriors undergoing chemo deserve tools to thrive which is why we created Chemo Care Kits and partnered with Give InKind to provide an easy path towards gaining support from your network.
