Helping Families Stricken With Cancer

Providing Assistance With Their Financial Needs


Our Mission

Dedicated to Supporting Families
Affected by Cancer

Our Mission

The mission of the Helping Up Foundation is to help families in the Northeastern Illinois area that have been stricken with cancer and to assist with their financial needs.

About Us

When our dear friend Pete was diagnosed with prostate cancer, our son Chase decided that he wanted to do something to help out. He decided to participate in the Relay for Life because his mom organized a mini relay with her students at Everett Elementary School in Lake Forest.

He chose the name Helping Up (Helping Uncle Pete) because to him, Pete is his uncle. We still take part in the Relay for Life, but since Pete’s passing, we decided to make an even greater difference by directly helping the families affected by cancer. Please help us with our mission to honor his memory. The impact we can make together is much greater than what any of us could do alone!
