Exclusive to the service of Imperial County cancer patients, the Cancer Resource Center of the Desert’s mission is to educate, guide, support, and empower the cancer patient through their cancer journey. Through Patient Navigation, CRCD removes barriers to cancer care including education about the diagnosis and treatment, providing needed emotional support, transportation assistance, financial advocacy (including assisting the uninsured and underinsured to obtain adequate insurance) and any other barrier that patient may face. In addition, CRCD provides Outreach Navigation for the purpose of educating the community regarding the importance of early detection and prevention. Since CRCD opened its doors in September 2006, it has served over 2,000 cancer patients who live in Imperial County. All services are provided at no charge.
