A Helping Hand

If you would like to help someone battling cancer, consider making a donation

Thanks to our generous donors, the center provides patients with free resources such as:

Each new patient who visits the Center receives a handmade blanket made and donated by members of our community. These blankets help keep patients warm and provide comfort during infusion and radiation treatments.

The Cancer Resource Center can provide patients with bras and prosthetics. The Center features a private fitting room and knowledgeable staff to help patients with size selection.

The Creating Renewed Confidence program teaches beauty techniques to women currently undergoing cancer treatment in a 2-hour group workshop. All women receive a free cosmetic kit color matched to their skin tone and are instructed how to deal with skin changes during or after cancer treatments, tips on skin and scalp care, nail care and make up application by a volunteer licensed cosmetologist.

Patients may receive monthly gas cards be used at Chevron stations, to help supplement the costs of transportation to and from appointments. These gas gift cards are made available through community donations and motorcycle runs hosted by the Yuma Harley Owners Group, Yuma motorcycle community and New Class Car Club.

Patients are provided with head coverings including wigs, hats, scarves and turbans to make them feel as normal as possible when suffering the side effects of hair loss from treatment. Staff not only help patients find the right covering to fit their personality, but also educate them on how to care for it properly. Many of the hats, scarves and turbans are made and donated by individuals in our community.

Cancer treatment often alters a patient’s diet. The Center provides patients with liquid nutrition, as available, to help them maintain their body weight and strength while going through treatment.
