The Tweten Charitable Foundation Supports Paying for Cancer Care

December 29, 2020



The Tweten Charitable Foundation is providing up to $25,000 for DCF’s 2020 Holiday of Hope Matching Gift Campaign. The matching funds will apply to any donations made to Desert Cancer Foundation between now and January 5, 2021.


DCF relies on major donor commitments and community donations to support their mission in paying for cancer care, screening, and diagnostic testing to uninsured and under-insured Coachella Valley residents. With $50,000 dollars raised it would translate to over $500,000 of cancer care provided by local medical institutions.


Since 1994, DCF has provided more than 8,250 individuals with access to cancer care and patient navigation. Through generous grants, donations, and partnerships, DCF has paid nearly $10 million dollars for cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment care valued at approximately $100 million dollars.
