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 diagnosed 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.
