Desert Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting residents in the Coachella Valley and surrounding communities who need financial assistance in obtaining screening, diagnosis and treatment for cancer and allied diseases.

Impact: For more than two decades the Desert Cancer Foundation has been dedicated to helping cancer patients throughout the Coachella Valley pay for the treatment they need to get on with their lives. Desert Cancer Foundation has paid the medical bills for hundreds of uninsured or underinsured cancer patients who cannot afford the treatment they deserve. With the help of Desert Cancer Foundation, cancer patients are able to receive care right here in the Coachella Valley. The Foundation provides assistance to cancer patients with significant financial needs to cover costs associated with diagnosis and treatment. Insured cancer patients who become unable to work may qualify to have their monthly insurance premiums paid. Desert Cancer Foundation provides cancer treatment funding for patients in the Coachella Valley through partnership with local healthcare providers and the generosity of our supporters.
