A coalition of cancer support agencies, hospital treatment centers, and governmental agencies uniting together to inform the community of resources, to educate, to advocate and to meet the needs of cancer patients and their families.
Many resources exist to aid those who receive the terrifying news that they or someone they love has cancer. In an effort to connect those resources with the people who need them, the Albuquerque Cancer Coalition united in 1998 to inform, to educate and to advocate on behalf of New Mexico’s cancer patients and their families.
The Coalition is an alliance of cancer support agencies, hospital treatment centers and governmental agencies. This publication provides information about member services and is dedicated to the thousands of families across New Mexico who are struggling with cancer and who must travel to Albuquerque for treatment.
