Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Nearly 40% of Americans will face cancer in their lifetimes. A diagnosis of cancer can bring many unanswered questions and difficult obstacles. The support given to the Tri-CIties Cancer Center Foundation takes aim at these obstacles and through funding for programs and services provides for all of the needed support for cancer patients in our region. We also support programs and services aimed at cancer prevention and early detection. This programs range from providing over 1000 no cost cancer screenings a year to our region to partnering with local restaurants to incorporate cancer fighting foods and healthy menu options to improve health and potentially prevent cancer.

Our programs

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

World Class Cancer Care

For the past 25 years, the Tri-Cities Cancer Center has been providing world-class cancer care to our region. Services have been expanded, treatment options remain cutting-edge and diverse, and the support given to patients and families, as well as resources available to the community, provides one of the best comprehensive cancer programs in the nation. These services, treatment options and resources are a direct result of the incredibly community investments made in our Foundation and ensures that no one in our region will fight cancer alone. The Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation continues to benefit from the generosity of corporations and individuals in our region whose desire to invest in world class cancer care has changed the availability and quality of services. These generous investments have allowed the Center to provide no-cost services like Nurse Navigation, supporting patients through their cancer journey, reducing emergency room visits through nurse consultation and providing practical support for side-effect management. These investments have funded our community education, which focuses on a variety of topics all aimed at the prevention and early detection of cancer, which gives community members the tools to reduce their risk of cancer and to become more alert in detecting cancer early, when treatment options are plentiful and outcomes are significantly improved. Community investments allowed us to provide over 1000 free screenings a year to our region, further emphasizing the lifesaving importance of early detection. Community Investments in our Foundation are a critical element to ensuring that world-class cancer care will ALWAYS be available in our region.
