About Connecticut Cancer Foundation

The Connecticut Sports Foundation Against Cancer was founded in 1987 by Connecticut native John Ellis, former Major League Baseball player and cancer survivor, to provide economic assistance and compassionate financial aid to cancer patients and their families in his home state. In 2017, the name of the foundation was changed to the Connecticut Cancer Foundation (CCF), to better reflect their mission.

Through the CT Cancer Patient Assistance Program, CCF is able to help Connecticut families requesting assistance through referrals from oncology social workers from hospitals, cancer treatment centers and hospices throughout the state. For the past 34 years, CCF has quietly granted over $6.9 million to more than 8,000 Connecticut families dealing with the financial hardship that often follows a cancer diagnosis. In addition, the Foundation has donated over $2.5 million to support ongoing cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. For more information, visit ctcancerfoundation.org.
