We're honored to share Karen's story.
Cancer Support Community Arizona's (CSCAZ) mission is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.
Our services are crucial because, while cancer patients typically receive state-of-the-art medical treatment, effective cancer care also requires the integration of psychological and social services to identify and address issues associated with a cancer diagnosis and prognosis.
Our programs are for anyone impacted by cancer, any diagnosis at any stage and include support groups, healthy lifestyle programs, education presentations, social connections, and resources & referrals, including our Direct Assistance Fund to help with out-of-pocket treatment expenses to ensure continuity of care.

OCredit for Contributions to Qualifying Charitable OrganizationsO
Arizona provides a tax credit to individuals who make a contribution to Qualifying Charitable Organizations (QCO), like Cancer Support Community Arizona. Individuals making cash donations to Cancer Support Community Arizona may claim a tax credit on their Arizona Personal Income Tax returns.
That means you can receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your state income taxes, up to $800 for married couples filing jointly or $400 for taxpayers filing as single or head of household. This credit is in addition to those you can receive for foster care, private school tuition and public school extra-curricular activities. You don't need to itemize your deductions to benefit from the credit.
