Arizona Oncology Foundation is a program-based organization that helps people through cancer treatment and survivorship. We provide things that increase quality of life while people fight cancer. Specifically, we provide the non-medical supportive services that most insurance companies either don’t cover at all or not to the extent that is actually needed. We have integrative and supportive services that help patients, their family members and care givers.
Arizona Oncology Foundation offers approximately 25 different programs and services. We group them into 5 basic categories – education, integrative therapies, support groups, movement and exercise, and other services such as housekeeping, transportation support, dental services, self-image, breast prosthetics and post mastectomy items as well as wigs and head coverings. Many of the programs are FREE. Some come with a small fee.
Typically, one would think of a foundation as having a principal purpose of making grants to unrelated organizations and other charitable causes. In our case, we not only fund the programs and services that directly help people fighting cancer, we actually deliver them.
Arizona Oncology Foundation has approximately 25 stated programs and services. Education, integrative therapies, support groups, movement and exercise and others, but we also try to meet individual needs as best as possible when necessary.
