About The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care
The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care was launched by Cam after the passing of his parents Marlene and Michael Neely from cancer. This experience created the inspiration to help others living with cancer. With the dream of honoring his 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.
