Cancer Care Services Fund

The Cancer Care Services Fund at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center directs philanthropic dollars to support low-income, uninsured and underinsured patients in accessing a variety of services to combat their cancer diagnosis.  Patient services covered through the Fund include chemotherapy treatment, genetic testing, clinical trials, counseling, and more. All winning bids and donated funds from the event will go directly to this cause!

Purpose: The fund for Cancer Care Services supports patient services at the Cancer Center as determined by the Director of Clinical Services Administration.
Funds will support patient services which may include, but not be limited to:
  • Financial assistance for health care services for patients who are uninsured or under insured and who meet financial need criteria.  This may include:
    1. psychologist services
    2. genetic testing
    3. use of off-label drugs (generally given as chemotherapy/infusion services)
    4. un-reimbursable costs of clinical trials
    5. other services covered by many health plans today
  • Funding for services that are not covered at all by insurance, including social services and nutrition counseling.
