Firefly Sisterhood, is a Twin Cities-based nonprofit, with a mission to foster one-to-one connections between women women experiencing breast cancer and inspirational survivors. These relationships are personal and local.  Our program is free and open to all.  All the health systems and cancer clinics in Minnesota and western Wisconsin refer patients to our program. They trust our staff, volunteers and our willingness to make sure every match is successful.

Gilda's Club Twin Cities (GCTC) is a cancer support community for anyone impacted by cancer - those living with a diagnosis, family, friends, caregivers as well as those living with loss. GCTC is where to turn for social and emotional support, all free of charge - from support groups, healthy lifestyle classes, education, social opportunities to information & referral - Gilda's Club is where no one faces cancer alone. GCTC is a local affiliate of the worldwide Cancer Support Community.

Every 3 minutes, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Cancer is a tough opponent. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is tougher. LLS is laser-focused on cures and relentless in supporting patients and their families to ensure they have access to care. The work of LLS is advancing breakthroughs for more than 1.3 million Americans living with or in remission from a blood cancer. Seventy years of fighting has led us to a game changing belief. Beating cancer is in our blood.

Pinky Swear Foundation helps kids with cancer and their families with financial and emotional support. Pinky Swear provides financial support for immediate needs like mortgage payments, rent payments, utility bills, food, transportation and much more. The organization also supports families with Pinky Swear Pantries at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital and Children’s Minnesota along with fun family experiences like the All-Star Weekend Program at Hilton Airport in Bloomington.
