Ways To Support
There are a number of ways to support those affected by cancer through the Connecticut Cancer Foundation. Whether helping to fund research, sponsor an event, or donating in honor of or in memory of a loved one, each donation helps sustain our mission. More than 85 cents of every dollar spent by CCF goes directly towards assisting CT cancer patients and research.

When an ‘In Memory’ gift is received, we promptly send a personalized tribute card to the person or family indicated, notifying them of your thoughtful donation but not revealing the amount.
Buy A Brick
Buy A Brick on our Walk of Fame in honor of, or in memory of, someone you know who has fought cancer.
Fund Cancer Research
CCF’s research funding focuses on an organization we have funded since its inception in 2010 – the International Lymphoma Radiation Oncology Group (ILROG). ILROG is a worldwide forum to further the understanding of radiotherapy in the treatment of lymphoma in children and adults around the globe. The organization is led by Dr. Joachim Yahalom of Memorial Sloan Kettering, the physician who saved CCF’s Founder, John Ellis’ life more than 30 years age.
Fund cancer research by making a restricted donation to CCF to support Dr. Yahalom’s lymphoma research or the other types of cancer research funded by CCF.
Funding toward cancer research is welcomed at all levels. Contact for more information.
