Rio Grande Cancer Foundation
For more than 25 years, the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation has helped alleviate the considerable burden of cancer for thousands of El Pasoans. Your donation enables us to provide programs, financial support and practical assistance to those undergoing a cancer journey and every dollar raised is kept in El Paso for those living with, through and beyond cancer!

Causes: Education, Health and Mental Well-being, Women's Issues


Every year in our community over 4,000 of our family members, friends and colleagues are diagnosed with cancer.

Your support of the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation during El Paso Giving Day helps us to reduce the burden associated with cancer. Through our programs, initiatives, and outreach efforts we impact our community through the provision of:

  • Financial support for El Paso cancer patients
  • Mastectomy garments for women
  • Assistance with compression sleeves for lymphedema due to a cancer diagnosis
  • Breast prosthetics for women who have undergone breast removal
  • A user-friendly site for those recently diagnosed with cancer
  • Monthly support groups provided through community partnerships
  • Classes that promote a healthy and positive lifestyle
  • Sunscreen education through our Beezley Sun Smart program
  • Prevention, early detection and awareness campaigns

All our services are provided free of charge.

Every cancer is represented by a ribbon color and every cancer journey is as unique as the patient. We are LOCAL and serve ALL THE COLORS OF CANCER! One hundred percent of your kind donation to the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation stays in El Paso.

Our services are intended to improve patient experience and preserve an enhanced quality of life.
