Our Mission

The Colette A. Miles Foundation’s mission is to “Provide Comfort and Support Services to Families Affected by Cancer.”

TCAMF has helped many families with non-traditional services like the ones listed below. Most people aren’t sure what non-traditional means and that’s the point, it can be ANYTHING.

  • Paid medical bills insurance doesn’t cover
  • Provide and deliver cancer fighting meals directly to patients home for 12 weeks
  • Child Care during treatment
  • Housecleaning Service
  • Landscaping Service
  • Snow Removal
  • Transportation to and from appointments
  • Grocery Gift Cards for 1 month
  • Financial support towards dental reconstruction as a result of chemotherapy
  • King Size Bedroom furniture to a terminally ill patient to share the final stage at home with family
  • Helped with household maintenance repair, Painting – kitchen disposal,

TCAMF has also supported three of the main cancer resources in the area.

  • Living Well Cancer Center – We fund the children and teen counseling program
  • Fox Valley food for Health – We contribute funds to help deliver cancer fighting foods to those diagnosed and their families.
  • Northwestern Cancer Center- Funded Ipads for patients to use as they wait or receive chemotherapy/treatments

Our foundation is a smaller not for profit charity that is run strictly by volunteers, however it is a charity that is really making a difference in the community.
