Cancer Caring Center is a local non-profit organization dedicated to helping people diagnosed with cancer, their families and friends, cope with the emotional impact of cancer. The Center is not an alternative to medical treatment. It is complementary to traditional medical treatment.
The organization was established through the generosity of the Greater Pittsburgh Franchise Community of Burger King and their corporate partners, Heinz USA and Coca-Cola Fountain. It is also supported by contributions from public and private sectors including an annual walk, Jeans, Jewels and Jazz and Pittsburgh Steelers Fashion Show.
We are also eligible to receive donations through The United Way Contributor Choice Program (#2824).
All services of the Cancer Caring Center are FREE.
To request assistance call us at 412-622-1212 or visit the Center at 4117 Liberty Avenue in Bloomfield (across from the Bloomfield Bridge).
Our hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Our Center is wheelchair accessible.
