“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us.
What we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.”
– Albert Pine
The mission of The David Benzer Strike Out Fear Foundation is to build a bridge from fear to hope for people diagnosed with cancer. By creating comforting, life-affirming environments in cancer clinics across the country, the Foundation’s Immediate Impact Program supports the emotional and spiritual needs of patients — to reduce fear and sustain the spirit from the moment of diagnosis, during treatment and into survivorship.
Since 2011, the Foundation has provided amenities for cancer clinic waiting rooms and treatment facilities that have enhanced the therapeutic experience for more than 88,000 new cancer patients and 620,000 patient visits.
Additionally, we provide web-based and printed resources to:
- Reduce fear and anxiety
- Empower patients with information on current treatment guidelines and complementary medicine
- Coach family and friends on how best to provide comfort and support
