About Us

We are a tax-exempt non-profit organization dedicated to providing crucial resources for cancer patients, assisting in covering the expenses associated with their diagnosis.

The MLC Cancer Foundation offers essential financial assistance to diagnosed cancer patients, providing support during their treatment and recovery journey.

Myrtle Lee Carter, the namesake of the MLC Cancer Foundation, may have lost her battle with cancer, but her indomitable spirit continues to inspire and propel the foundation's mission forward.
