MISSION

Our mission is to provide comfort, support and hope to cancer patients and their families.

 

ABOUT US

Cancer affects the entire family, not just the patient. Meeting families' overwhelming needs for accommodations, understanding, support and hope along with providing the opportunity for them to share time and experiences together embody the essence of The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care.
The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care was launched in 1995 by Boston Bruins President and alumnus, Cam Neely, after he lost his parents, Marlene and Michael Neely, to cancer. This experience created the inspiration to help others living with cancer. With the dream of honoring his beloved parents and the hope of helping others, The Cam Neely Foundation was created to help cancer patients and their families during treatment. As millions of Americans will be diagnosed this year with some form of cancer, an understandable sense of urgency propels the Foundation’s mission.
Located in Boston, Massachusetts, The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care is a support driven 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is comprised of two parts: The Neely Cancer Fund and The Neely House. The Neely Cancer Fund supports treatment and research efforts while The Neely House provides a convenient, comfortable place to live, relax and talk to others while undergoing treatment.
Since its inception, the Foundation has donated over $30 million to Tufts Medical Center to design, fund and complete projects with immediate tangible results that have had a positive impact on thousands of families as they face such a difficult diagnosis. This special relationship with Tufts MC ensures easy access to some of Boston’s world-renowned medical facilities and to unmatched compassionate care. Together, we recognize that everyone’s needs are unique and, therefore, we strive to provide whatever care, emotional support and hope possible to facilitate the healing process.

 

LOGO

The Foundation's logo is a representation of the history of the Foundation. The original logo, which showed the door to The Neely House, depicted the meaning of the Foundation at the beginning. The Foundation has grown since 1995 so we wanted to show this with a fresh new logo. The two M's in the logo represent Cam's parents, Marlene and Michael, who lost their battles with cancer. The 8 in the center of the M's is the number that Cam wore on his jersey during his year with the Boston Bruins. The colors were chosen based on the colors that Marlene and Michael liked.
