Mission Statement

Careity Foundation is a Texas 501(c)3 with two initiatives. Careity is dedicated to providing onsite support services in an oncology setting for economically challenged cancer patients and through early detection in North Texas. The pediatric palliative care program is directed at providing relief to children with devastating diseases and life threatening illnesses.

Since its inception, Careity Foundation has set the platinum standard in the nonprofit community. Careity Foundation was the first in the nation to offer oncology massage in the chemotherapy room to relieve the side effects of drug therapy in patients.

In 2009 we introduced an unprecedented expression of compassion for women in our community, as Careity Foundation initiated the first annual Careity Day offering free mammograms to underinsured residents of Parker, Johnson and Tarrant Counties in Texas. Any Careity Day participant diagnosed with breast cancer recieves individualized treatment -- including biopsy, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and hospitalization -- this service is provided cost-free by Careity Day partners. The effort is believed to be the first private initiative of its kind in the United States. In 2009 more than 200 women took advantage of this opportunity.
