Our programs support cancer patients and their families during their cancer experience and through the stages of diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Some programs offer much needed practical and logistical help while others provide emotional support and/or education. Many services are provided in conjunction with our community partners, others are facilitated by the staff of Utah Cancer Foundation.
Utah Cancer Foundation offers a variety of support groups, including the only continuous support group in Utah for men with all types of cancer. We also offer groups for patients dealing with advanced illness and unique support programs such as Look Good…Feel Better and Reel Recovery. Please see our Calendar for more information.
Knowledge about cancer can be very empowering for patients. We offer a variety of educational programs including a Chemotherapy Class. Please see our Calendar for a complete listing. Utah Cancer Foundation also provides educational materials and information about community resources for cancer patients and their families – for more information please call us at 801-281-6861.
Partnerships are essential for our success and the Utah Cancer Foundation works closely with a number of community partners including Reel Recovery, Intermountain Therapy Animals, the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and the College of Myotherapy. Please see our Calendar for a listing of events and/or programs as they are offered in conjunction with our community partners.

Fatigue is the most common side effect of cancer treatment, occurring in over 90% of patients. To assist patients in dealing with this often overwhelming side effect, Housekeeping Helpers offers free housecleaning services to cancer patients undergoing active radiation or chemotherapy treatment. Instead of vacuuming a room or cleaning the bathroom, our goal is to relieve cancer patients of their day-to-day stresses and energy-takers and allow them to focus precious energies on families and uplifting activities.
National and local companies partner with Utah Cancer Foundation to provide professional housecleaning services to patients, who receive up to 10 free housecleaning visits. Housekeeping Helpers is offered on a first come first served basis and our service area is limited. For more information and to find our how to register, please call the Foundation at 801-281-6861.
Housekeeping Helpers is funded entirely through donations from individuals and corporations. To help, please contact us at 801-281-6861. To make a secure online donation, please click here: Online Donation Form.
