How does Rock Cancer C.A.R. E. know what living with cancer is really like?
Rock Cancer C.A.R.E. was founded in 2008 by Tamela Reed, a cancer survivor and mother of two. Her experience motivated her to start RCC. In addition to Tamela, a majority of RCC’s volunteers are survivors, caregivers, healthcare workers and others directly impacted by the realities of everyday life with cancer.
How is Rock Cancer C.A.R.E. involved with the Rock Church?
Rock Cancer C.A.R.E. started as ministry inside the Rock Church. The ministry grew very quickly and in order to achieve the vision for RCC, we became a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, independent from the Rock Church.
Are you a faith-based group?
Yes, but our services are open to anyone. Cancer doesn’t see faith, color or creed and neither do we. We believe that prayer works and will provide prayer support only if asked.
