Please Support WCRC's Mission! 

The Women's Cancer Resource Center (WCRC) of Berkeley, California, provides free services that improve equitable access to cancer information, support and care.


WCRC has a long and proud history of providing support and advocacy for those in the LBTQIA+ community facing cancer. Through targeted outreach and LGBTQ-oriented community events, LGBTQ people receive empathetic and respectful cancer support at WCRC.


In the past year, special events included:  


  • an LGBTQ Caregivers Panel, cohosted with The Pacific Center 
  • a community listening session with Alameda County to better understand the mental health needs of LGBTQI seniors, cohosted with NIA Collective 
  • a community dialogue about how end of life considerations impact LGBTQI people differently, cohosted with ReImagine End of Life

Across these community events, there were common themes about access to adequate emotional support, fears around being alone/isolated when managing an illness, and financial resources to make ends meet.  

YOUR GIFT TODAY can help WCRC meet the needs of these community members. Many of our clients are already under-served, isolated and immuno-compromised. COVID-19 is putting them at greater risk than ever -- medically, socially and economically


From March 26 through midnight on Give OUT Day, April 23, WCRC has set a goal to raise at least $25,000 to fund the FREE services we provide every day of the year, so that no one who comes to us will have to face cancer alone.


Through these turbulent times, WCRC will remain true to our mission, to provide free services that improve equitable access to cancer information, support and care, which our clients will still need once this crisis passes. 


Your donation of $25 or more will support community-based navigation, health and wellness classes, psychotherapy and more, ensuring that WCRC's clients receive the tools they to face their cancer journey.  


Please donate between March 26 and April 23 to help us compete for thousands in additional Give OUT Day prize money.
