Our Vision is . . .
Improving the health status of women and their families.
Our Mission is . . .
to provide cancer education and access to life-saving screenings, and to secure treatment resources for the uninsured and under-insured in Arizona.
The Desert Cancer Foundation of Arizona is a non-profit, 501 (C) 3 organization dedicated to serving uninsured women and their families who are in need of cancer care and treatment.
The Foundation is a grass-roots, all volunteer organization whose object is to bring together coalitions of corporations, community and service organizations and private citizens in developing resources for cancer screening, diagnostic and treatment options for our medically underserved population. Our board strives to maintain the highest degree of accountability, ethics and professionalism in our work.
Critical care issues in our communities and state are identified and addressed by partnering with health care institutions, other non-profit organizations, physicians and individuals to create a cancer-care network and referral system.
