What Organizations are Saying About Us ...
Your donation this year made it possible for us to accept all the children who wanted to come to camp. Unfortunately for us all, there were more children diagnosed with cancer in Northern California than ever before and our numbers at camp grew by 12% this summer.
As a volunteer organization we never want to turn away anyone, especially children who might be having their last summer. That would have been the case this year if not for your support. I cannot thank you enough on behalf of the kids and their grateful families."
~John Bell, Chairman and Founder of Camp Okizu

"Thanks to generous funding from The Cancer League, Inc., the East Bay Agency for Children is able to make a strategic change in the structure of our PediatriCare Program. We believe that this change will allow us to reach and assist even more families coping with cancer.
Circle of Care provides compassionate and skilled care to children and families coping with serious illness, bereavement, or other traumatic losses through support groups, individual counseling, crisis intervention services, and home-based family support.
The majority of families we serve have an immediate family member who has cancer. On behalf of the children and families we serve, we would like to thank the Cancer League, Inc. from the bottom of our hearts for their part in the battle against this terrible disease!"

"On behalf of University Health Services at the University of California, Berkeley, we are deeply appreciative of the generous donation from the Cancer League, Inc. This donation will directly support a comprehensive, hands-on educational program for our primary care clinical staff on clinical breast examination.
This has tremendous importance for optimizing breast health for women. The health care system needs clinicians to have a solid foundation and experience in conducting the best breast examination possible for their patients.
As a direct result of the donation from the Cancer League, UHS will be able to offer this extended educational program."

"The Cancer League Support for the Mobile Mammography Program at UCSF will help us to provide screening mammography for the underserved in communities that traditionally have low rates of screening.
This will be the first digital mobile mammography system in the world! This is only possible with the generous support of people who understand how important early detection of breast cancer is.
Thank you for your support!"

"I deeply appreciate The Cancer League’s investment in my research, “Development of a Novel, Biomarker-Based Clinical Algorithm to Improve Risk-Adapted Therapy for Patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.” My highest priority is to pursue innovative research that brings the most effective treatments to patients as quickly as possible.
