When someone receives a cancer diagnosis, the patient and their families get quickly thrown into a world of complicated medical procedures, decisions and treatment options. For some patients, the diagnosis and treatment of cancer is accompanied with devastating financial and emotional effects.
Our programs and resources provide help and hope to adult patients and their families to help them through this difficult time. It's our way of trying to help these families focus less on their financial stress and more on their health and recovery. The New Mexico Cancer Center Foundation (NMCCF) is dedicated to supporting our patients' non-medical needs during their fight against cancer. What does this mean to the patient? That if their co-pays and transportation costs have consumed their monthly budget, that the Foundation will step in and pay their rent, utilities, groceries or gas.
In 2012, we celebrated our Tenth Anniversary of helping cancer patients and their families. The New Mexico Cancer Center Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit org anization, guided by a board of directors and assisted by a large group of volunteers and advisors. Currently, the NMCCF serves patients with cancer or severe hematological disorders who receive care at any of the New Mexico Cancer Centers in Albuquerque, Gallup, Ruidoso and Silver City.
