Cancer Legal Care

Mission Statement

Cancer Legal Care's mission is to engage the law to resolve the complex challenges facing people and communities affected by cancer.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments In 2018, our Legal Care Program served 550 clients with 680 different legal matters, an increase of 25% over those served in 2017.
Current Goals In 2019, of the anticipated 600 Minnesotans affected by cancer who receive legal care from a Cancer Legal Care staff or volunteer attorney and complete a follow up survey/interview, 50% will report a resulting positive change in their financial stability and/or emotional well-being. In 2019, 70% of the active volunteer attorneys completing our survey will volunteer to take on another pro bono matter for a Cancer Legal Care client.
Community or Constituency Served Minnesotans affected by cancer (the person diagnosed at any point from diagnosis forward and their loved ones/caregivers)
Geographic Area Served Statewide Minnesota; majority of clients come from the Twin Cities Metro Area, but our legal care services are open to anyone in Minnesota affected by cancer.
