Welcome to Critters For The Cure

Confronting Cancer... One woman at a time.

Do you or someone you know need financial and emotional support while battling breast or gynecological cancer?  Critters For The Cure offers support for women in MD, VA and D.C.

Critters For The Cure™ (CFTC) is the only women’s cancer 501(c)(3) organization in our nation’s capital providing immediate emergency funds when women in need.  CFTC supports women beyond screening, diagnosis and medical treatment.  We attempt to meet needs that are often just as debilitating as the disease itself.
