Caddo-Bossier Cancer Foundation League

Organized by cancer survivors and their families, the League is guided by leaders who understand the emotional and financial issues faced by those dealing with cancer treatment. Beyond the issue of “Will I survive?” are more mundane but very stressful issues: Who can take me to my treatment? Can I afford the medications? How can I come to Shreveport from out-of-town? As patients struggle with finances and travel issues, they may not be able to receive care as recommended by their physicians.

The League’s office is located in the Physicians Common building, 3300 Albert L. Bicknell Drive, Suite 3, across from the Willis Knighton Cancer Center and provides services to patients undergoing treatment there, but it is not an affiliate of Willis Knighton. Thus, community involvement through donations is critical to our growth as it seeks to serve large numbers of patients. As technology at the Willis Knighton Cancer Center expands, more and more people from out-of-town will seek care.
