Cancer Donation Letter

Donations are sought for helping patients get rid of their medical ailments. One such medical ailment, that requires huge amounts for treatment is CANCER. Many NGO's and charities work towards this cause and they raise funds for this by drafting cancer donation letters.


There are more than 200 types of cancers, and every cancer has a different treatment. However one common thing in all types of cancer is the cost involved for its treatment. Cancer treatments are usually very costly and it is impossible for a lower class citizen to afford this treatment. Even middle class citizens struggle to get such treatments and many a times fall prey to bankruptcy, if at all they get into such a situation.

The charities work to help such needy people. They not only provide financial help, but also help in spreading awareness about cancer. There are many hospitals that have special divisions dedicated to cancer, and they in co-operation with different trusts and charities, provide free treatments and check up for cancer patients. For all this, huge funds are required as there are many expenses like medical equipments, medicines, consultant's fees, etc. These funds are raised through donations.

Following are two donation request letters:

  1. A Cancer foundation requesting for donation
  2. A father requesting for cancer donation for his child

Father Zakarius
Holy Church,
New York- 55606

Dear Father Zakarius,

I am Jack Zing and I am writing this letter to request you to help me save my 12 year old daughter Lillian, who is suffering from bone cancer.

We are a self sufficient family. I am the only earning member in the family, and I work in a mill as a worker. It is highly impossible for us to afford the cancer treatment for our child. Lillian is our only child and you are our only hope. You can help give our child a second chance to live and help her live happily.

I hope to get your help in this case as soon as possible. Her cancer is in the initial stages and the doctors have told us not to waste any time and get her treated as soon as possible.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Jack Zing

Hope these letters will clarify your doubts regarding cancer donation request.
