For nearly 20 years, the Cancer Coalition of Southwest Colorado (formerly the Health Coalition) has reached out to help people with cancer. We began with a fight against breast cancer, then expanded to all cancers. As our efforts grew, we gained increasing financial support from the community. Since 2006, our volunteer organization has raised and given away over $100,000 in gas cards and treatment grants.
The Cancer Coalition Fund provides up to $300 for rent, household expenses, groceries, and other necessities to people with cancer.
Grants are available to individuals who meet the following criteria:
• Currently undergoing treatment or have completed treatment in the last three months
• Live in Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma, or San Juan County
• Receive treatment at SW Oncology and the Durango Cancer Center
• Meet current income guidelines
