About Us

North Bay Cancer Alliance is an independent community resource, not affiliated with any hospital or medical group, providing a direct path to local cancer resources and information as well as financial support for cancer patients who cannot afford to pay. We are here for not just cancer patients, but their families, friends and caregivers.​

NBCA Financial Assistance

Financial concerns can greatly affect access to timely healthcare for people who are uninsured and underinsured. We will continue to build on our strategy of forming partnerships with the financial counseling departments at our local healthcare providers and identify qualified candidates for NBCA Financial Assistance. These departments have become robust in recent years and are quite adept at helping individuals sort through and find existing financial aid through state, federal, private and nonprofit agency programs. Despite the numerous financial assistance programs available there are still many people who do not qualify for support yet who urgently need cancer services. It is these medically and financially pre-screened individuals, who have nowhere else to turn, that NBCA will provide financial assistance to.



In addition to funding a variety of important community cancer needs, NBCA also funds local research projects. You can view our current projects on our Partners page. If you have a cancer related research project that needs funding please reach out and tell us about it.

What We Fund

The services we fund may include but are not limited to: cancer risk assessment, genetic testing, screening procedures, treatment, integrative therapies, follow-up care and incidentals. If you live in our service area and your physician has determined you need cancer services but you are not covered by insurance or other support programs and cannot self pay, you may be eligible for NBCA financial assistance. Have your healthcare provider contact us to discuss your case.


The primary service areas of North Bay Cancer Alliance are the five counties in the San Francisco North Bay, which include Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Lake, and Mendocino.
