The mission of the Cancer Caring Center is to help cancer survivors, their families and concerned friends cope effectively with the emotional impact of cancer through a variety of FREE support services.


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 the 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.
