Helping Cincinnati Area Families Since 2011
The purpose of Helping Hands of Cincinnati is to provide financial support to families battling cancer in the Tri-State Area. Our goal is to provide financial support to supplement finances which insurance companies might not cover. These costs include, but are not limited to, travel, living expenses, related physical and mental therapy, deductibles, and co-insurance payments. In addition, we will direct families to other support programs that can ease the financial burdens associated with cancer. HHC will be accepting new applications in August 2016. 100% of all proceeds raised by HHC donations and events go directly to Cincinnati families.

That’s when I stood up and said, “if there is treatment, let’s start right now.”
