The Community for Cancer Care Endowment is led by the Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation. The Cancer Advisory Council developed a comprehensive ambassador program to engage hundreds of community members with the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center and the Community for Cancer Care Endowment to fund sustainable programs and services.

Almost everyone has been touched by cancer in their lives in some way. Each one of us has a story or an experience about someone we know with cancer. The moment patients walk through the doors, they have an immediate sense that the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center was designed for their benefit.

  • The Cancer Advisory Council led the effort to raise these vital funds to sustain high quality oncology programs to benefit residents in our community
  • Tahoe Forest Hospital is the only critical access hospital in the far west that is affiliated with an NCI designated Cancer Center, UC Davis
  • The Vision of Tahoe Forest Health System is “To Be The Best Mountain Community Health System In The Nation”
