Assistance in Healthcare

Working together to impact the lives of people in our communities


Helping Cancer Patients Walk Taller

Assistance in Healthcare, (AIH) was established in 1983 by a group of volunteers in Zion, IL, as a non-profit solely to raise funds to support cancer patients and their families.


AIH has provided financial support to patients undergoing active cancer treatment for over thirty years providing financial assistance for non-medical expenses. Thanks to the generous support of our extraordinary donors and volunteers, AIH supports patients who are being treated in Zion, IL but live across the country.

AIH is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization, which receives no state or federal funding. AIH relies solely on the support of individual donors and sponsors. Donations and gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
