Rio Grande Cancer Foundation
Cancer Changes Lives. But So Do We.

Causes: Education, Health and Wellness, Women's Issues

Every year in our good community, over 3,300 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 significant burden associated with cancer. Through our programs and initiatives, just last year we impacted our community through the provision of:

Financial support for 550 El Paso cancer patients
Mastectomy garments for 300 women
Lymphedema sleeves for 300 women
Breast prosthetics for 200 women
Support groups and lifestyle change classes for over 500 individuals
Free-standing sunscreen dispensers within our city's parks and recreation sites
Prevention and early detection campaigns****

All programs are offered 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 we serve ALL THE COLORS OF CANCER! One hundred percent of your kind donation to the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation stays in El Paso to help El Pasoans.

“Cancer is a journey, but you walk the road alone. There are many places to stop along the way and get nourishment – you just have to be willing to take it.” – Emily Hollenberg, cancer survivor
