The mission of SCCA is to provide, at no cost to the cancer survivor, transportation to and from doctor appointments, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments. All of our drivers are volunteers. We are a 50l (c) 3 non-profit organization. Proceeds from our fund raising events, along with private donations, will give us the funds needed to continue serving cancer patients for years to come.
Sierra County Cancer Assistance
Sierra County Cancer Assistance has been providing free transportation for Sierra County residents, to cancer patients needing chemo, radiation treatments, doctor appointments, and testing for 10 years. We have driven over 800,000 miles and made approximately 5,500 round trips to either Las Cruces, or Albuquerque.
We could not do this without our communities support. Our fund raisers, private donations, and the best volunteers in the County have been the only things that have kept us going. We provide Volunteer drivers, if needed, and gas money for these stressful trips, sometimes daily.
This year’s fund raiser theme “cancer sucks” was a great success. SCCA wants to thank everyone who donated their time, gave wonderful auction items, provided great food by BEDROX, music by Sue Barr, live auction with Willard, Shattuck Vineyard’s wonderful local wine, yummy homemade pies, and fun. Our sponsorship drive has shown us your commitment to what we are doing. Thank you again from our Board of Directors for being there for us. Call Steph at 575-740-3971 if you would like to volunteer, donate, or have questions.
All of the funds we raise remain within Sierra County! We provide service to Arrey, Caballo, Chloride, Cuchillo, Cutter, Elephant Butte, Engle, Hillsboro, Truth or Consequences and Winston. We dedicate ourselves to our primary goal - to 'Care, Share, and Give’ back to the community of Sierra County.
