I couldn't have gotten through my ordeal without them. They gave us hope, pointed us in the right direction and most of to let us know we are NOT alone....They are now a part of my family forever. They always seem to call when I was in need to talk or just for them to listen. I love them ALL. They are a great group.... I could go on for days about all the good they do.

Always having that caring voice on the other end of the phone. The LOVE and Support they give both emotionally and financially. The fun Magic Night, Family Reunion, Christmas party. So many to list. My children will never forget the amazing love they feel whenever they get together at any of these events. The way you try to keep some fun in their life as they go through treatment.

Ocean of Love helped make our Christmas holiday possible the year my son was diagnosed. They made it possible for us to be happy at a very difficult time and we will always be grateful for that and for everything they have done for us for the past 5 years. Our family is very thankful and grateful to Ocean of Love for so many things!!

Ocean of Love is a non-profit, 501(c) (3), charitable organization dedicated to helping Ocean County children with cancer and their families. Our purpose is to assist the children and their families through their illness. We provide financial and emotional support so that they can experience the "normal" joys of childhood, knowing their lives are significant and meaningful to each and every one of us.

Our History

Ocean of Love was co-founded by Linda Gillick and the late George Goldt and it began by assisting 12 families in 1988 and, to date, has helped over 600 families. Unfortunately, we have grown bigger than we ever expected. We would like nothing more than to be able to say childhood cancer no longer exists. As long as children in Ocean County are being diagnosed with cancer, Ocean of Love will be here to help.

How does our non-profit organization help families?

Ocean of Love provides a safe space for the children and their families. We provide emotional and financial support to allow the children to experience a more "normal" childhood. We provide travel expenses for treatments, assistance with household bills & food, funeral expenses, family parties, support groups and much more.

Ocean of Love receives numerous inquiries regarding what appears to be higher than normal rates of cancer. Anyone who has a concern should contact the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services by visiting this link. Please make sure you have all documented information available to present to them. Thank you.
