Our Programs


The NKF Foundation funds a host of services assisting cancer patients and their families during treatment at New York-Presbyterian and North Shore-LIJ hospitals. Our “Nancy Friends” volunteers will hold the hand of a patient for hours while he or she endures their initial round of chemo. Long days in the hospital are brightened by bedside video game therapy, performances by our NKFF Singers, and one-on-one Paint-A-Picture sessions. Nurses and caregivers look forward to enjoying a catered meal in the floor lounge on NKFF Staff Appreciation Days, and patients look forward to delicious calorie boosts provided by our Milkshake program.
