Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Family Cancer Retreats

Free, three-day educational programs held twice each year that provide NM’s adult cancer survivors and their loved ones with tools and information they need to manage the treatment and survival process. Each program features 35-40 speakers, including 15+ physicians. Over 500 people from more than 200 New Mexican families attend each year, making this the largest general cancer education program in our state and the largest program of its type in the U.S.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Free clinics and recordkeeping tools to help cancer patient/survivors and their loved ones manage the complex set of legal, insurance, and paperwork issues associated with a cancer diagnosis.  For more information, please see our LIPA website - www.nmcancerhelp.org(http://www.nmcancerhelp.org)

Population(s) Served
Adults

Statewide distribution of free information kits that help newly diagnosed parents and their children aged 3-18 cope with the impacts of cancer in their family. This is the only program in our state specifically focusing on the needs of the children of cancer survivors.

Population(s) Served
Adults

This program connects experienced caregivers with newer caregivers in need of advice and support and was developed based on a survey we conducted of 500+ cancer patients/survivors, which indicated a huge need for emotional support services for those caring for loved ones coping with cancer.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Reducing cancer suffering for New Mexico's families

Develop and deliver cancer education and assistance programs that address gaps in New Mexico's cancer-related services.

Along with a tremendous board, excellent staff, and a large cadre of dedicated volunteers, we have documented the key organization roles and the processes/procedures for each of our programs to ensure we can deliver services that reduce cancer suffering for New Mexico's families on an ongoing basis.

We have directly assisted over 15,000 New Mexicans coping with cancer to date, and continue to reach more each year.

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    Electronic surveys (by email, tablet, etc.), Paper surveys, Constituent (client or resident, etc.) advisory committees,

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, To make fundamental changes to our programs and/or operations, To inform the development of new programs/projects, To identify where we are less inclusive or equitable across demographic groups, To strengthen relationships with the people we serve,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to cancel our Spring 2020 Family Cancer Retreat originally scheduled for April, 2020. Based on feedback from clients and the medical community, we quickly developed a strategy for reinventing this nationally-recognized program in an online format, and were able to deliver a webinar version of the Retreat in June, 2020.
