The Renaissance Cancer Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide
support for cancer patients in the Rio Grande Valley.
Since 2008, the
Renaissance Cancer Foundation has dedicated its efforts to building community awareness while providing cancer education, emotional support, financial assistance and guidance for underserved patients.
The Renaissance Cancer Foundation’s goal is to provide our patients with services to help them during their cancer journey. We are dedicated to continually expanding our programs and services to ensure we meet the health care and social needs of the communities we serve today and in the future.
What We Do
The Renaissance Cancer Foundation primarily focuses on providing funding for chemotherapy treatment, medication, surgery, imaging studies, house and utility bills, transportation, lodging, nutritional supplements, and hair loss items.
In addition, the Renaissance Cancer Foundation organizes community outreach programs for cancer prevention and early detection. The organization offers support groups, nutritional services, patient navigation, and emotional support, all of which is free for cancer patients in the Rio Grande Valley.
The Renaissance Cancer Foundation also provides free nutritional care packages for patients and their families. The packages include English and Spanish easy-to-prepare recipes, the food items needed to prepare the recipes for a family of four, and household cleaning items. As we continue to strive for a healthier Rio Grande Valley, we encourage all community members to try these quick recipes and make a pledge to live a healthier and happier lifestyle.
