About Us

We are a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that offers resources for financial assistance to cancer patients to cover expenses incurred due to diagnosis.

MLC Cancer Foundation helps newly diagnosed ovarian and breast cancer patients get the financial assistance they need during treatment and recovery.

Myrtle Lee Carter is the namesake of the MLC Cancer Foundation, while she lost her battle with cancer, her spirit is the driving force behind the foundation's creation.

Help drive our awareness efforts when you pitch in to event registration, preparation, and set-up. Professional volunteers, including nutritionists and dietitians, are also welcome.

Show your commitment to helping those diagnosed with ovarian and breast cancer when you make a charitable donation. Donations help cancer patients in need of financial assistance with co-pays, medical procedures, child care during treatments, and even groceries.
