Vice President Joe Biden Selects Family Reach Foundation for Cancer Moonshot Partnership
CEO of Family Reach
Running enthusiast, patient advocate, and CEO of Family Reach, Carla Tardif is a spirited leader who isn’t afraid to go the distance. She’s been leading the charge against Cancer-Related Financial Toxicity (CRFT) for over 10 years, making tangible impacts for cancer patients and their families through innovative solutions and collaboration.
Tardif led Family Reach from a family-founded organization to a national nonprofit with the mission of preventing and reducing the financial burden of cancer for families today, while developing collaborative solutions to enable systemic change tomorrow. Her knowledge about CRFT has made her a sought-after speaker across the U.S. Under her leadership, Family Reach increased its hospital network from 5 east coast sites to more than 400 top-tier hospitals and cancer centers nationwide, expanding from $200,000 annually to over 10 million dollars annually. Such tremendous growth means Family Reach can impact more than 40,000 people affected by cancer each year.
Expanding her reach throughout the cancer space, Tardif is also on the board of the SHEPHERD Foundation, a nonprofit focused on transforming healthcare policy and funding treatment for rare cancers.
