About the Foundation

Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation

In the early 1990's, forward thinking members of the Tri-Cities envisioned a local state-of-the-art cancer care in our community. The Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation was established in 1996 to raise funds for services that support those touched by cancer. Donations made to the Foundation stay in our community and are used to support local patient and their families.

The Foundation was established to support programs and services the Cancer Center provides to patients and their families at no cost. These services, which include our Nurse Navigators, Chaplains, and the Patient Financial Counselor help patients and their families through their cancer journey and provide financial and spiritual support in facing this difficult disease.

The Foundation also supports community programs, like no-cost screenings, cancer-education presentations, and classes in our Wellness Center. We also house the region’s most comprehensive cancer education library, the Ralph R. Peterson Library, dedicated in 2010.

The Cancer Center was built in 1994 by generous donations from our community. Thank you for continuing this legacy as we fight a disease that affects us all.
