Tricia's Troops Programs

Project Connect

Our “Project Connect” program is designed to help cancer fighters and survivors optimize their wellness through healthier eating choices, increased physical activity and enhanced social support.

Our goal is to educate, inspire and empower our cancer community to make simple lifestyle choices that can help their bodies heal and create a sustainable foundation for optimal living with cancer and beyond!

Present Connection

As a symbol of hope and support, we distribute Chemo Care and Radiation Relief Tote Bags to patients at local cancer centers that are filled with a variety of items to provide much-needed comfort and encouragement to individuals beginning treatment. These gifts ensure that cancer fighters know they are thought of, cared for and never alone on their journey. If you would like to get involved in this mission, please check out our Wish List!

Care Connection

Our CARE (Cancer Assistance Relief & Empowerment) Program focuses on the practical concerns, out of pocket costs and daily living needs that arise from living with cancer. By helping alleviate some of the daily stresses associated with a cancer diagnosis, people are able to place more focus on their health, happiness and those they love. To achieve this we provide limited financial assistance and free services to help cancer fighters address some of the non-medical challenges that insurance doesn’t cover. Based on the unique needs of each individual, we may offer support in the following areas:

  • Transportation/Fuel
  • Groceries/Meal Support
  • Housework (Cleaning, Seasonal Chores, Repairs etc.)
  • Laundry (Wash & Fold Delivery Service)
  • Utilities/Bills
  • Wigs, Cancer Care Products and Supplies
  • Treatment-Related Dental Care 
  • Child Care
  • Non-Medical Caregiving
  • Complementary Therapies/Exercise/Wellness

We accept referrals from local cancer centers and can also support individuals who contact Tricia’s Troops directly. If you or someone you know may benefit from the help of Tricia’s Troops, please call (262) 303-4034 or e-mail candi@triciastroops.org.

Wig Bank

At Tricia’s Troops we provide a private setting for women to select a wig free of charge with the help of an experience and compassionate consultant. We also accept donations of new and gently used wigs. 

If you need a wig during cancer treatment or have a wig to share, please call (262) 303-4034 or e-mail candi@triciastroops.org.

Faith Connection

This program is all about believing in the power of prayer! We have a group of volunteers committed to lifting up in prayer the names of anyone living with cancer who requests this spiritual support.

If you’d like to make a prayer request or become a volunteer, please call (262) 303-4034 or e-mail candi@triciastroops.org.
