Cops 4 Cancer, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up of law enforcement officers from the Illinois Valley area. The Cops 4 Cancer mission is to help residents of the Illinois Valley who are stricken with cancer and suffering from the financial perils the disease creates.
When we initially started Cops 4 Cancer, we raised money for Illinois Valley Community Hospital. However, in 2010, we became our own entity distributing money directly to families in the Illinois Valley. In
How does this work? Area families who are suffering from the financially draining turmoil cancer can cause complete an application requesting funding through our organization. A committee, made up of community members independent of Cops 4 Cancer, review these applications and distribute money accordingly.
Since June of 2011, we helped more than 50 Illinois Valley families. We paid their mortgage or rent. We paid their utilities, bought groceries, funded transportation, made insurance payments, paid medical bills and much, much more. We helped them to focus their energy on beating their cancer and less on how they could afford to pay their medical bills while keeping a roof over their heads and food on their tables.
We couldn't have helped these families without the support of our community and local businesses. Click here to view the hundreds of businesses that contribute to this cause.
