Your donation in any amount will help us save lives

Based on our current patient statistics, we calculate that within the first 12 months of opera­tion at AHGL, the medical staff will conduct over 10,000 procedures to patients who live or work in our immediate service area. Just imagine how many families will be kept whole by this advancement in our fight against the many faces of cancer!

If you’ve been touched by cancer, you know how important this fight is. Your tax-deductible donation in any amount is gratefully accepted. Here’s how you can share in AHGL’s vision of Saving lives… Close to home:

We need you!

Fighting cancer takes teamwork and involvement — and it takes money. That’s why the Foundation is reaching out to you and friends of Adventist Health Glendale throughout the community to help support this lifesaving project.

Every donation counts

Most funding is already raised through AHGL’s capital investment and local philanthropy. However, we still have a ways to reach our goal. That’s why the generosity of friends like you is so important. For many years to come, patients treated in the Cancer Center will benefit — because you cared!
