Stand By Me is a nonprofit organization that provides support and services to local Israeli-American cancer patients and their families.
The struggles of these families are indescribable. Having to battle cancer while speaking a foreign language, understanding a different culture, dealing with financial hardship and having little or no family around is unimaginable. We at Stand By Me are here so that none of our community members faces cancer alone.
We provide services in Hebrew and understand the cultural needs of the Israeli-American community. Our services are based on the individual needs of each family, and are directed by the professional expertise of psychologists, nurses and social workers. Stand By Me is focused on improving and enhancing the daily quality of life for the patient, the spouse, the parents and the children.
