In 2023 North Bay Cancer Alliance provided $86,000 to more than 420 local, low-income cancer patients.
Help cancer patients in our community meet basic financial needs, like getting to oncology appointments which are far from home.
You can fund existing programs or take advantage of our self-directed philanthropy.
NBCA serves all local cancer patients with cancer information, patient resources, financial assistance and important data, statistics and research. We focus on ensuring those patients who fall through the cracks — low income people with cancer and their family, friends and caregivers — are able to get the treatment they need to move through the cancer journey.
NBCA and Mind in Motion have joined forces to present The STRENGTH Blanket Project. The project was conceived by Mind In Motion founder and motivational speaker Leigh Weinraub. The idea: wrap cancer patients in blankets of strength.
The patients we care for at St. Joseph Health Regional Cancer Care have greatly benefited from our partnership with North Bay Cancer Alliance. We recognize that each patient is more than just their disease and, as such, healing requires a more holistic approach. NBCA helps many of our patients with the greatest needs by enabling them with transportation, food, and other essential support as they go through treatment. Additionally, they’ve sponsored new support programs we’ve been able to trial with our patients. One example is our Yoga Sound Healing class that has been very popular among patients. We greatly appreciate our partnership with North Bay Cancer Alliance!
I was told that I should consider genetic testing with my second breast cancer. After going through the assessment and risk consultation offered through SCRAPPI, I made the decision to be tested for the breast cancer genes and learned that I have a BRCA2 mutation. Having this valuable information has helped me to move forward and make educated choices on my health care. The free services I received through the program made a big difference in my life. Thank you.
I was in a fog after my doctor told me I had ovarian cancer. The binder I was given to look through at her office had way too much information for me to handle. The NBCA website helped me quickly find exactly what I needed to know.
The internet has vast amounts of information available about cancer, and that can be overwhelming to patients. This website is really helpful for patients to find the proper information they want quickly and easily.
Thank you for having this program. I thought I might be at increased risk but I did not know there was anything I could do about it.
We have many top notch providers of cancer care here but no one has brought all the cancer information I need together in one place before.
