Rotary president Chris Naftel with Jim Wallace, founder of the Tehachapi Cancer Foundation.

Founder of the Tehachapi CANCER FOUNDATION, Jim Wallace, told the Rotary Club of Tehachapi about the mission of the organization that was established by Wallace and his wife Tammy who passed away from the disease shortly after the organization received its 501(c)3 status. The focus of the organization is to assist cancer patients and their families with some of the unexpected hardships and expenses that accompany the treatment of cancer.

Wallace said that even the amount of gas needed to get back and forth to Bakersfield for treatments can be daunting and the Foundation will often provide assistance in the form of gift cards. In another case, the Foundation was able to find a donation of firewood for a patient whose home had no other heat. For more information about Tehachapi CANCER FOUNDATION check out their website at
