ANITA SALAS MEMORIAL FUND

The Anita Salas Memorial Fund, a non profit 501(c)3, helps pay for women's breast or cervical cancer treatment, or related bills such as transportation, lodging, or medications for treatment. These women are moderate to low income, under insured or uninsured.The funds go directly to the bills, not the woman. 100% of the donations help women in New Mexico. There is only a 5% administration fee. So, 95% is used for direct breast and cervical cancer services for women; with nominal amounts towards fundraising.

CANCER FOUNDATION FOR NEW MEXICO

Our mission is to help save lives by providing the needed support to enable every northern New Mexican with cancer to access treatment in Santa Fe. Many cancer patients throughout Northern New Mexico rely on us for mileage reimbursement, overnight lodging, grocery cards, and support groups. We understand that a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. We’re here to help. We receive no state or federal funding and all money that we raise stays here in our local community.

WRITE TO HEAL

This engaging workshop for cancer patients and survivors explores expressive writing as a way of healing. All skill levels welcome. Based on (but not limited by) the life-changing diagnosis of cancer, this workshop offers “expressive writing” as a way of healing. While writing may not cure, it can heal. Writing and sharing our stories with others on parallel paths will be our avenue to reclaim our voices, and reconnect with our lives. You are welcome if you have never written or if you have always written.
