The Shelly Sachs Foundation

Assisting Families Living With, Through & Beyond Cancer

Founded by Aaron Sachs and his children, the Shelly Sachs Foundation is a 501c3/W9 nonprofit organization that aims to assist individuals and families in navigating the many challenges of living with—and beyond—cancer. The foundation was created in loving memory of Aaron’s wife, Shelly, who lost her battle with cancer in 2017.

Cancer not only affects patients; it also changes the lives of their families and loved ones. It has a tremendous and far-reaching physical, emotional, and financial toll. The goal of the Shelly Sachs Foundation is to help ease some of the worry and lift some of the burdens patients and families face as they live with, through, and beyond cancer.

To that end, the foundation assists with some of the myriad costs associated with cancer and cancer treatment, such as prescriptions and procedures not covered by insurance, insurance premiums and co-pays, transportation to and from medical appointments, durable medical equipment, nutrition, and more.

Shelly Sachs Wig Room

Hair is an essential part of personal identity for many people, allowing us to express our personalities and cultural backgrounds while connecting us to precious memories. Losing hair due to chemotherapy or other treatments can feel like a significant loss, causing feelings of sadness and overwhelm on top of everything else that cancer patients have to endure.

If you're experiencing cancer-related hair loss, know that your emotions are valid, and you're not alone. The Shelly Sachs Wig Room is here to help you feel like yourself again. This is the only location in SW Missouri to be able to receive a free wig.

Through our partnership with GYN Cancers Alliance and Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks, the Shelly Sachs Foundation aims to support as many women as possible during their cancer journey. We understand the trauma of hair loss and hope to lessen the blow of cancer by providing quality services to women from all walks of life.

GYN Cancers Alliance will assist in providing a free wig, wig stand, care instructions, and a special gift bag for each individual to pamper themselves. We know the importance of this work, and this partnership between our organizations will serve more women, ensuring they receive the help they need during this challenging time.

Community Events

As part of our commitment to giving back, our team at Aaron Sachs & Associates, P.C. is proud to take part in numerous community events each year. Many of these events support cancer research and related causes, and several specifically benefit the Shelly Sachs Foundation. Among these are the Dinner on the Diamond event, an annual dinner held at Hammons Field in partnership with the Springfield Cardinals, and the Diamonds on the Diamond Raffle, which provides one lucky winner with a custom-made, one-of-a-kind diamond pendant.
