Global Resource for Advancing Cancer
Education (GRACE) - cancergrace.org

GRACE is a nonprofit organization that was developed as a
means of improving the overall medical care for cancer patients
by democratizing cutting edge information on optimal cancer
management and providing it directly to patients. We recognized
that while there is an overwhelming amount of new information
available to physicians, actually more than they could integrate,
patients and their families often have a deep interest in their own
care and often have the time and motivation to ensure that they
are receiving the best treatment possible.

Gold in September - goldinseptember.org

Our mission is to raise awareness and inspire action for childhood
cancer initiatives for every child, everywhere. Childhood cancer
is an urgent health crisis, even for those who are surviving. G9
believes there is hope. G9 is inspiring the world to #growGOLD far
and wide to raise awareness and give optimism to every child,
everywhere until better cures for cancer are found. Growing gold
shows the world you want to do something about the future of
survival for all kids diagnosed with cancer. We are all impacted
by childhood cancer. Together, we can change the future of
childhood cancer as we inspire the world to #growGOLD for
childhood cancer, this September, and EVERY month of the year.

community founded by cancer survivors and caregivers who
wanted to create a more human approach to helping people

similar experiences, and to tailored information that helps our
users become more aware of options specific to their needs or
diagnosis - empowering them to make choices that are right for
them.

Handful is owned by women, powered by women and united by
a passion for encouraging all women to grab life by the handful.

the US each year.

ELEPHANTSANDTEA.COM
DECEMBER 2019

Sometimes the best therapy is just talking to someone who's
been there. Imerman Angels connects cancer fighters, survivors,
caregivers, and those with cancer predisposition with "Mentor
Angels" - volunteers who share the same, or similar, experiences.
Mentor Angels provide a chance to ask personal questions and
receive support from a peer who has been down the same road.
The service is absolutely free and available for those touched by
any cancer, at any age, living anywhere in the world!

JoAnna Barker is a 20- something who defeated cancer and
wrote a book about it. You'll laugh, you'll cry and then you'll find
multiple references to books and movies that she some how
related to cancer. Don't be fooled, if you don't have cancer you'll
still love this book. It's a great read for people with cancer, people
who love people with cancer and people who just want to know
how to relate. We hope you enjoy this reading journey. Trust us,
it's not what you'll expect!

Lacuna Loft - lacunaloft.org

Lacuna Loft is a nonprofit organization providing online support
programs to young adult cancer survivors and caregivers. The
only organization offering diverse online programs regardless
of diagnosis and regardless of where they live, Lacuna Loft is
changing the way that age-appropriate support is provided to young
adults facing cancer. Survival is insufficient and we are here to
make sure that survivorship support is available, accessible, and
specifically designed for young adults facing cancer.

Melanoma Research Foundation melanoma.org

The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) is the largest
independent organization devoted to melanoma. Committed to the
support of medical research in finding effective treatments and
eventually a cure for melanoma, the MRF also educates patients
and physicians about prevention, diagnosis and the treatment
of melanoma. The MRF is an active advocate for the melanoma
community, helping to raise awareness of this disease and the
need for a cure. The MRF's website is the premier source for
melanoma information seekers.

Mend After Cancer - bit.ly/2N92YmU

Mend After's Recovery Registry offers an easy way to get support
when it's needed most. It's like a wedding registry but for cancer
patients. You can register for needed help like cash funds or
products + services recommended by doctors and survivors.
Friends and family can contribute funds or simply choose a gift to
send. If you create a Registry, use code ET$50. Patients get a $50
site credit and Mend After will donate $20 to Elephants and Tea!

Momcology - momcology.org

Momcology is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed

cancer families. We provide modern and intuitive national platforms
for primary caregivers to connect with each other, support one
another, seek current and timely information and begin the longterm healing process after a childhood cancer diagnosis through a
strong, resilient and educated peer support community.

M Powerment - cancerdudes.org

Our mission is empowering men to thrive after cancer. With a
scarcity of resources geared specifically to men's unique needs,
M Powerment was created to provide education and resources in
order for men to successfully move past their cancer experience.

Supporting and informing people about their cancer diagnosis
and the bone marrow/stem cell transplant process through
personalized support is at the core of the mission of the National
Bone Marrow Transplant Link. Since 1992, the LINK has been
linking and caring, providing a number of services and resources
