The mission of the 501(c)(3) public charity nonprofit organization (Tax ID 77-0569948) Cancer Patients Alliance (“CPA”) is focused on improving health outcomes for cancer patients through cancer education, addressing health disparities and enabling cancer patients and their families to become active partners in their medical care.

CPA was founded in 2001 in Monterey County, California by physicians and community members alarmed at the lack of sufficient, reliable information to enable cancer patients to be partners in their medical care. CPA’s experience is in initiating innovative, community approaches that build on creating collaborations with organizations and health providers and engaging the community to address diversity in cancer care for Salinas Valley’s underserved.

Additionally, CPA has founded and supports the information-intensive web resources known as Pancreatica.org and NETumor.net in order to provide current, credible and comprehensive information about pancreatic cancer, and related neuroendocrine tumors.

Why Choose Cancer Patients Alliance?

“This charity is focused on directly supporting the kind of research I want to support. Research to diagnosis pancreatic cancer at an earlier stage. They have also helped my family find a genetics center for screening” 

Cancer Patients Alliance’s websites have been an amazing resource for my family. The medical literature references display an impressive concentration of information on published scientific articles. I will continue to support and volunteer with this great charity and cause.

 

“We ran a 5K in honor of our grandmother June, Cancer Patients Alliance gave us great resources, information, and encouragement” 

 

 

Recently, a seasoned specialist told us that we had the highest social good to donation ratio that they had ever seen in any non-profit. We put all donations to serious use toward the mission of fighting pancreatic cancer. Less than 8% of donated funds are used for management expenses.
