It is a heartbreaking reality that many cancer patients in Phoenix are left without a strong support system during the stresses of cancer diagnosis/treatment, and even for those with families, it is a time of extreme physical and mental stress. Cancer wreaks havoc on the body, often leaving patients weak, sick, and unable to care for themselves through the preparation of healthy meals. Malnutrition becomes a sincere worry for cancer patients and their loved ones as medical bills increase and they are no longer sure where their next meal will come from.
This is where The Joy Bus comes in. We are passionately dedicated to our mission of relieving the daily struggles of homebound cancer patients by delivering fresh, chef-inspired meals at absolutely NO COST to the client. Through community partnerships, our food is freshly prepared according to each client's dietary needs and then delivered in eco-friendly, chemical free packaging by a compassionate volunteer who
provides personalized service by spending time with each client. We are the ONLY local service of this kind focused on not only providing quality food but also personal attention, companionship, and nutritional education to those afflicted by cancer.
To date we have delivered over 4,000 meals to homebound cancer patients and we would love you to join us in this journey as we continue to expand our program to serve a greater number of those in need in Arizona.
