History

Cancer affects an entire family, not just the patient. Meeting families' overwhelming needs for accommodations, understanding, support and hope along with providing the opportunity for them to share time and experiences together embody the essence of The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care.

The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care was launched in 1995 by the Neely family after the passing of their parents Marlene and Michael Neely from cancer. This experience created the inspiration to help others living with cancer. With the dream of honoring their beloved parents and the hope of helping others, The Cam Neely Foundation was created to help cancer patients and their families during treatments. As millions of Americans will be diagnosed this year with some form of cancer, an understandable sense of urgency propels the Foundation's mission.

Located in Boston, Massachusetts, The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care is a support driven 501(c)3 non-profit organization who, through initiatives and programs sustained by donations, provide comfort, support and hope to cancer patients and their families.

Since its inception, the Foundation has raised nearly $30 million net from donations of all sizes, impacted thousands of families and continue to dedicate ourselves to designing, funding, and completing projects with immediate and tangible results.

Mission

The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care, The Neely House, and The Neely Cancer Fund exist for one reason - to help cancer patients and their families during their treatment.

  • The Cam Neely Foundation makes it all financially possible.  The special relationship with Tufts Medical Center's Cancer Center ensures easy access to Boston's world-renowned medical facilities and unmatched compassionate care. Together, we recognize that everyone's needs are unique, and therefore we strive to provide whatever care, emotional support, and hope possible to facilitate the healing process.
  • The Neely House provides a convenient, comfortable place to live, relax, and talk to others.
  • The Neely Cancer Fund supports treatment and research efforts.

Our Logo

The Foundation's logo is a representation of the history of the Foundation.  The original logo, which showed the door to The Neely House, depicted the meaning of the Foundation at the beginning. The Foundation has grown and is now in its 20th year, therefore, we wanted to show this with a fresh new logo.  The two M's in the logo represent Cam's parents, Michael and Marlene, who lost their battles with cancer.  The 8 in the center of the M's is the number that Cam wore on his jersey during his year with the Boston Bruins.  The colors were chosen based on the colors that Michael and Marlene liked.
