Improving the Lives of Our Patients - ECHO Associates

A Beacon of Light on Your Cancer Care Journey


Improving the Lives of Our Patients

ECHO is proud to have a unique, non-profit organization dedicated to providing support services, guidance, and education to cancer patients and their caregivers. Our goal is to address each patient’s individual needs so that no one lacks care or comfort while living with cancer.

This fiscal year (from July of 2023), the Foundation has provided financial support of over $47,000 to patients and their families:

Beacon of Hope

The Foundation has provided $17,000 in financial support to help patients cover the costs of rent, utilities, nutritional drinks, gas, school supplies, holiday meals, and groceries.

Rock to Rides

Since July, the Foundation covered the cost of $2300 to support transportation for patients to their essential oncology care appointments.

Holistic Health

Over $7500 of costs were covered for patients receiving integrative medicine care such as massage, reiki, and acupuncture. The program is currently funded by a generous grant from After the Storm. Dozens of patients have benefited through our partnerships below:

Spreading Holiday Cheer

  • Dozens of Thanksgiving baskets, complete with turkeys and fixing, were donated to families in need.
  • Dozens of ham dinners were delivered to gift on to patients for the Christmas holidays. Rolls, pies and all of the fixings were provided.
  • Backpacks were provided to children to start the school year.

We are proud to make a positive difference in the lives of our patients. We are grateful to the support of our generous corporate, business, and individual donations.
