Beckstrand Cancer Foundation was founded in 1974 by Dr. Grant Beckstrand and a group of doctors specializing in the treatment and care of cancer patients.
The charitiy’s National Spokesperson is Eva La Rue.
For more than 36 years, the Foundation’s goal has been to improve and enhance the quality of life for cancer patients and their families. This mission is achieved through an Individual Patient Assistance program in which the Foundation is unique in providing financial assistance, patient advocacy, supportive counseling and practical help to patients in the midst of their cancer treatment and struggling to cope with critical survival needs. While research is imperative to finding a cure, approximately 1.4 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2011, and little support is available to assist these victims with day-to-day living and basic needs. This is where Beckstrand Cancer Foundation serves as the missing link.
