Stand By Me was founded in 2009 so that none of our Israeli-American community members would battle cancer alone!
The struggles of the families supported by Stand By Me are indescribable: Having to face cancer while speaking a foreign language, understanding a different culture, dealing with financial hardship and having little to no family around is unimaginable.
We at Stand By Me provide services in Hebrew that are given by a professional team of psychologists, social workers, nurses and volunteers. The organization's community members become an extended family. They stand by one another on a daily basis.
