Welcome to Tucson Cancer Conquerors
Tucson Cancer Conquerors is an all-volunteer, non-profit support group dedicated to empowering cancer survivors and the communities that support them to achieve optimal wellness. We offer a unique peer support environment along with creative wellness programs designed to educate, inspire, and encourage cancer survivors to be proactive about their health both during and after cancer diagnosis and treatment. Our group is run by cancer survivors and our supporters, so we understand first hand the physical and emotional challenges associated with a cancer diagnosis. With a focus on exercise, nutrition, education, and support, we are here to help you successfully navigate the journey that lies ahead. You are not alone. We have your back.
You don’t have to be a cancer survivor to be part of Tucson Cancer Conquerors. Our comprehensive approach to wellness is essential to cancer prevention and benefits everyone. Cancer survivorship is about getting healthy and staying healthy.

Plus evidence now shows that regular physical activity may play a protective role and decrease the risk for many types of cancer, and that it may also help temper the adverse effects of treatment!
