Assisting families in living with, through, and beyond cancer

Graphic separation element

The Shelly Sachs Foundation is a 501c3/W9 nonprofit organization  assisting families living with, through and beyond cancer. The foundation is in loving memory of Shelly Sachs and was created by Aaron Sachs and his children to assist families fighting cancer.  The Foundation's purpose is to offer comfort to those who suffer with the burden of cancer.  Cancer not only changes the patient but also the lives of their families. Cancer patients may suffer tremendous hardship emotionally and financially. We hope to take some of that worry and burden away from them.

“The journey can be overwhelming and very dark and sometimes you feel invisible but that’s when you have to step out and look around at all the people who have extended their hand to you and giving you hope and that’s what Shelly Sachs Foundation did for me.”

"I just wanted to take a few minutes to say how much the grant helped me.  I just recently found out I have Metastatic  Breast Cancer. I am raising two of my grandkids, ages 11 and 14.  It is a hard road to go down but thankfully with prayers and your help, it has eased the burden.  I am sorry for your loss of Shelly, once again.  Thank you, words cannot say how grateful I am.

With love, Ruth"


"Dear Laura & Shelly Sachs Foundation,


I just wanted to thank you so much for your help. Finding your foundation has been an unexpected blessing. It's been a trying time to say the least. I was focused on getting my degree so I could achieve my life-long dream of teaching elementary school, then Covid happened, and then cancer. I'm still reeling from my diagnosis. Knowing that you are here helping people like me have healthy food to eat during my treatment & a comfy blanket to snuggle up in has helped this nightmare be less overwhelming. It's comforting to know that an organization like yours exists. Words alone cannot express my gratitude.


Thank you so much for sending the gift cards & blanket so swiftly!



"Thank you to you and the Shelly Sachs Foundation for being my angels.  Facing cancer is the biggest fight of my life but the humiliation of being in need is the hardest thing I think about cancer.  God bless you and thank you again.
