Cancer Information

St. Mary Medical Center has had an approved Commission on Cancer Program since 1985.

To find an approved Commission on Cancer hospital you can go to American Cancer Society “Find Treatment Centers” or American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer “Find an Approved Program Near You.”

In order to help identify preventable causes of cancer, all cancer cases are reported to the state of California. If you would like information on clinical research, please contact a member of our nursing staff. This information is also available through the National Cancer Institute by calling (800) 4-CANCER or by visiting www.nci.nih.gov.

For those diagnosed with breast cancer, specially trained volunteers from the High Desert Unit of the American Cancer Society can provide information, support and hope. For information on the Reach to Recovery program, call (760) 245-2443 or (800) ACS-2345 (toll-free). You can also visit the Web site at www.cancer.org.
