Where no one
faces cancer alone.
Not today. Not tomorrow. Not Ever.
Our free cancer support program is available to anyone and everyone impacted by cancer – any stage of the cancer experience, any type of cancer.
Our Youth Program is specifically designed to support children (ages 5-12) and teens (ages 13-17) facing a parent’s cancer diagnosis, treatment, or loss.
We offer our free cancer support program at a number of hospital partners throughout the five boroughs of New York City.
A cancer diagnosis impacts more than the patient, it affects family and friends of the patient too. At Red Door Community we offer short-term individual support for the entire family and support network of a cancer patient.
Red Door Community is so important to me because after I got cancer, I learned to love again, I learned to support again, and I learned to live again.
Having an organization like this where the door is open, you see this Red Door and you come in and you are embraced and … immediately encouraged and your heart just smiles and knowing that you don’t have to go to find the money to be able to access such invaluable activities and programs.
Even now, while we meet virtually, I have access to resources I can’t find anywhere else.
I was newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer, I was bald from chemo, bloated from steroids and emotionally lost … the feeling walking in that red door was at once a one of coming home.
