The Cancer Association of Havasu was organized in 1999 by a group of local volunteers. Their focus was on providing low cost cancer screening, education and support for cancer patients and families. It is their primary purpose to use money raised in Lake Havasu City to benefit local residents. The Cancer Association firmly believes early detection is the key to receiving the best treatment for a favorable outcome.
The past and present chairmen all say the success of the organization is due to the wonderful, dedicated volunteers, the donors and sponsors that have contributed time and financial support throughout the years. To them we say "Thank You"! With your help we are expanding the services offered by the Cancer Association and providing valuable services to the Lake Havasu community.
The Cancer Association of Havasu cares about you and your family and we want to help you navigate through what lies ahead. We strive to provide tools and resources you need on your journey and we celebrate You the Survivor, and You the Caregiver!
Bosom Buddies is a support group for Breast Cancer Survivors, led by Carol Ferrell. The survivors hope to raise awareness of the importance of annual mammograms in detecting breast cancer early when the treatment options and outcomes are the most favorable. To raise awareness, they actively promote, support, and volunteer their time for their annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk, which is held each October. Early detection is the best protection - these ladies know this all too well and want to share that knowledge with their sisters - and brothers! Not nearly enough people know men can also have breast cancer!

As soon as you are diagnosed we consider you a survivor! Twice a year Cancer Association of Havasu brings cancer survivors together for a celebration of life. Each June, in conjunction with the National Cancer Survivors Day, we hold a Cancer Survivors Day Breakfast and in December we host a Year-End Celebration. At both events, survivors are treated to food, entertainment, and inspiring messages.
The Cancer Association of Havasu conducts three premier fundraising events each year. Our goal is to help cancer patients in our community, so all money raised here, stays here.
The Breast Cancer Awareness Walk is normally held the 1st Saturday of October each year in conjunction with the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event draws large numbers of walkers who support our cause - to provide low-cost mammography for women in the Lake Havasu community.
Our Elegant Evenings Fashion Show is held each November. This fashion show is a perfect way to kick off the holiday party season and tickets sell out early! The night includes great food, entertainment, silent auction, 50/50 raffle and, of course, the best of Havasu fashion both on and off stage.
