Cancer Connection is able to offer all its programs and services free of charge because of the generosity of our community. We receive no funding from state or federal governments, the United Way or the American Cancer Society. Instead, we are supported through individual donations, grants from foundations and businesses, and community benefits like the ones listed here.

Camp Out for Cancer Connection!

Monte's Summer Camp -  July 18 - 19, 2018

wrsi logo


No more cold weather camping for Monte. At least not this year. THIS year it’s Cancer Connection Summercamp. Still to benefit Cancer Connection. This time, no igloo.

Monte and his intrepid campers were out on the courthouse lawn in the warmth of July - Summer Camp for Cancer Connection!

Every dollar they raised went directly to support Cancer Connection. Here's how you can help. 

Missed your chance to give during the event?  You can make a contribution through our PayPal page and tell us which camper you want to support. 

Special Thanks to the Mass General Cancer Center at Cooley Dickinson Hospital, Mutton & Mead, and the Greenfield Savings Bank for offering a Challenge Hour Match.
