Official Covid-19 Response from the President of Arizona Oncology Foundation
March 16, 2020
Dear practitioners, therapists, volunteers and supporters of the Arizona Oncology Foundation,
As an organization whose focus is entirely on caring for those in the Southern Arizona cancer community, we find ourselves on the front lines of the global outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus). The virus has officially been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization and a public health emergency by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. Together, we will do
everything in our power to protect the health of our communities.
At this time our duty is to help stop the spread of the virus to avoid community contagion, particularly among those who could be most vulnerable.
We have made the decision to consolidate our resources, volunteers and personnel, and to operate only from our Craycroft Resource Center, located at 2625 N. Craycroft Rd. Ste. 215, until Tuesday, March 31st. Ample signage at our Rudasil Resource Center informs patients, clients and other visitors of this change.
We will have a staff member at the Craycroft Resource Center Monday through Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm to provide assistance to our patients.
Volunteer support will be restricted throughout this time period. We will reassess the situation at the end of March and will provide further updates at that time. Until then, our Program Manager, Ron Bridgemon and available volunteers, will be happy to help reschedule/cancel any appointments or services.
These changes have been implemented to prioritize the absolute safety of our staff, volunteers, practitioners and the community we serve.
Thank you for your support and understanding at this unprecedented time.

Chief Development Officer
Arizona Oncology Foundation is a program-based organization that helps people through cancer treatment and survivorship. We provide things that increase the quality of life while people fight cancer. Specifically, we provide the non-medical supportive services that most insurance companies either don’t cover at all or not to the extent that is actually needed. We have integrative and supportive services that help patients, their family members, and caregivers.
Arizona Oncology Foundation offers approximately 25 different programs and services. We group them into 5 basic categories – education, integrative therapies, support groups, movement and exercise, and other services such as housekeeping, transportation support, dental services, self-image, breast prosthetics, and post-mastectomy items as well as wigs and head coverings. Many of the programs are FREE. Some come with a small fee.
Typically, one would think of a foundation as having a principal purpose of making grants to unrelated organizations and other charitable causes. In our case, we not only fund the programs and services that directly help people fighting cancer, we actually deliver them.
Arizona Oncology Foundation has approximately 25 stated programs and services. Education, integrative therapies, support groups, movement and exercise, and others, but we also try to meet individual needs as best as possible when necessary. Simply visit one of the Resource Centers in Tucson or Green Valley. In Tucson, we have one on the TMC campus at Grant Rd and Craycroft Rd, and one at Rudasill Rd and La Cholla Blvd on the NW side of Tucson. For more program information call 520-471-9067.
