Cops Fighting Cancer’s mission is to provide individualized financial, practical and emotional support to Colorado cancer patients and their families. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping Colorado cancer patients. We pride ourselves in keeping overhead very low, ensuring that donations go directly to the needs of Colorado cancer patients and their families. Cops Fighting Cancer is made up of police and civilian volunteers providing emotional, practical and financial support making a REAL difference in the fight against cancer.
Financial Support: Cops Fighting Cancer provides individualized financial support to families as our resources allow. While medical bills mount, families are still faced with the “everyday” financial obligations that we all face:
• Rent/Mortgage Payments
• Car Payments
• Insurance Premiums
• Other Financial Obligations
Cops Fighting Cancer focuses on the “most pressing need”, and works to meet it. This allows the patient and families to focus on getting better. Practical Support: When a family is facing the battle with cancer, even the
smallest problems can seem huge. Cops Fighting Cancer seeks to relieve the burden by providing practical assistance. For example, one family was faced with having to do laundry at the local laundry mat due to a broken washing machine.
Cops Fighting Cancer found, purchased, delivered and installed a new one. This was a small, practical step that made life a little easier for the family – and that’s what Cops Fighting Cancer seeks to accomplish on a practical level. Emotional Support: The battle with cancer can be daunting. It takes it’s emotional toll on a patient and their loved ones. Cops Fighting Cancer provides emotional support that goes well beyond sympathy, creating an uplifting, challenging and supportive environment.
Jim Seneca, the founder of Cops Fighting Cancer, was diagnosed with leukemia in 1987. After a grueling battle, he won. It’s because of that experience that Cops
Fighting Cancer can provide the needed emotional support for patients and their families. There is personal empathy and understanding in a one-to-one support environment. Cops Fighting Cancer is there so the patient and their family don’t have to fight alone.
