Through direct interaction with the community…. We Inform, We Encourage but most importantly We Support!

Who We are

Established in 2010, Shades of a Cure, Inc, is the only Cancer Awareness Organization to host a walk in Harlem, NY dedicated to bringing awareness to the community. Prior to establishing Shades of a Cure, members were actively involved in the community, we quickly discovered there was a lack of cancer related resources. In addition, most felt uncomfortable going to a larger organization for assistance. We currently serve as a vessel for cancer survivors and their family members as well as members of the community to the larger organizations. We assist in finding resources that will fit the needs of the community.

Financial Assistance

The costs of fighting cancer are enormous, both emotionally and particularly financially. Shades of A Cure is currently offering financial assistance to cancer patients for Doctor Visit Co-Payments.
All are welcomed to apply for the grant. If you have any questions, please email us at
