The Columbia Basin Cancer Foundation works with several organizations to help those in the community with the help and support they need.

Because There Is HOPE

Our organization originated as the dream of Melody Biehl.
As a cancer survivor, she was quite confronted by the reality that revolves around cancer treatment. She felt that the fight for wellness should be supported and not burdened by the rigors of handling the minor details of travel and accommodation during the treatment process.
That dream has grown into an organization and supportive network that lifts up the process to another level.
Because There Is Hope is honored to welcome patients to a place of support, compassion, and relief from the challenges they face daily.
100% of proceeds go directly to the local community.
