The Thomas & McMahan Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for New Orleans area cancer patients and their families throughout their cancer experience. Our customized patient programs and services allow patients to regain control of their lives during difficult times. We provide many services that are not covered by traditional means or health insurance.
The Foundation is supported through corporate sponsorships, individual gifts and bequests, and annual fundraisers. We have received grants from the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the Louisiana Breast Cancer Task Force, the St. Tammany Cancer Fund, and other local national organizations.
Many worthwhile organizations are striving to find a cure for this insidious disease, and to otherwise assist in the fight. The Foundation is unique, as we strive to impact individual patients in our own community in small but meaningful ways:
- Caregiver Referrals
- Meal Delivery
- Yoga Classes
We are always open to undertaking new programs geared towards making life easier for those fighting one of life's most challenging obstacles, and meeting needs that otherwise go unnoticed and unmet.
