Official Covid-19 Response from the President of Arizona Oncology Foundation

Covid-19 Letter Header

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.

Respectfully,


Lee Klein
President
Board of Directors
Arizona Oncology Foundation

Financial Programs & Health Services

Financial Assitance Programs

We are striving to provide programs at zero cost.

Arizona Oncology Foundation is dedicated to providing supportive programs and services to anyone affected by cancer, regardless of where you seek traditional treatment or the inability to pay. Research shows that people with support systems in place, live better, heal quicker and have better outcomes than those who do not. Recognizing that cancer treatment is expensive, we offer assistance to ease the financial burden and encourage supportive services in the following areas:

  • Vouchers for integrative therapies, nutrition and exercise classes that the foundation offers.
  • Dental Treatment for services needed because of your cancer. See section below.

Application Process:
Obtain Financial Assistance for Complementary Services Application Form from Arizona Oncology Foundation. Patient’s physician must sign the form indicating that patient meets financial hardship guidelines.


Dental Services

Eligibility Requirements:

Dental problems must fall into one of the following categories:

  • Dental problems that must be addressed prior to receiving chemotherapy or radiation.
  • Dental problems that arise during treatment that would compromise appropriate cancer treatment.
  • Dental problems that arise as a consequence of chemotherapy or radiation.

NOTE: Cosmetic or routine procedures are not eligible for assistance through our Application Process.

We partner with a number of local dentists for this free service.
