Taos Cancer Support Services exists to serve the needs of people with cancer, beyond their clinical treatment. We connect them with trusted local, state and national services to help meet basic needs, ease stress, and promote healing while also supporting tangible needs that arise due to treatments being outside our local community.

We serve area residents from early in their diagnosis up to one year after their last treatment. Our program is funded solely through grants, fundraising and generous donations.

Services Include:

  • Health care navigation
  • Support groups
  • Grief and loss support
  • Fitness, health, and cancer coaching
  • Massage, yoga, acupuncture, and other modalities
  • Assistance with transportation costs, lodging, and food

Donate:

Taos Cancer Support Services is funded by grants and donations. Our 5K walk and fun run, “For the Health of It” will take place in the month of June. Updates for this year’s event will be posted soon. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we coordinate Pain Taos Pink, an array of local events including Zumba, Yoga, fundraisers supported by local restaurants, and a silent auction — all to support our program and community members experiencing cancer.

Donations can be given at any time through this website or by sending a check to: Cancer Support Services, 413 Sipapu Street, Taos, NM 87571

Road to Recovery

This is an American Cancer Society service program that provides transportation for cancer patients to their potentially lifesaving cancer treatments and home again.
