For 34 years, the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation (ECF) has been providing New Jersey families facing the crisis of pediatric cancer a place to turn for comfort and relief.åÊ ECF was founded by a family whose lives were turned upside down by their own sonÛªs cancer battle; they wanted to give back to other families experiencing the same pain and offer services that made a vital difference in their daily lives. Based on their passionate vision, today ECF is committed to being a beacon of light for New Jersey families facing pediatric cancer.
We offer more than 200 families a year free services that include 24-7 emotional and advocacy support by professional caseworkers, material donations such as food, clothing, toys, household items and birthday and holiday gifts; and emergency financial assistance. ECF helps families navigate the complicated world of cancer, preserve their emotional well-being, and relieve their day-to-day burdens. Headquartered in Clark and with three other regional offices across the state, ECF has helped over 2,000 families since its inception in 1983.
