Who We Are...A History of Caring

In the mid 1980s, there was no building designated as the Arizona Cancer Center at the University of Arizona Health Science Center in Tucson.  There was, however, an impressive staff of physicians and scientists who dreamed of establishing a comprehensive cancer center in Arizona and of eliminating cancer as a threat to humankind.

In 1986, 12 energetic women organized a dinner and auction which was held at Saks Fifth Avenue in Phoenix, AZ.  The event, called  Evening in the Park, raised $13,000 for cancer research.  From that humble beginning emerged a volunteer organization called Phoenix Friends of the Arizona Cancer Center (FACC).  Evening in the Park became an annual event.


Today there are 37 Phoenix Friends who are active members and there are over 40 associate members.  Since 1986, they have raised and donated over $3.0 million to the Arizona Cancer Center.  Each year Friends determines how the donated funds will be distributed.  With emphasis on research projects and equipment, none of the funds are applied to administrative cost.



It is said that the flight of a butterfly

can change weather around the world;

you are each our butterflies…

you are changing the world;

you are curing cancer!
