The San Diego Cancer Research Institute is temporarily unable to accept new clients at this time.

SDCRI is a small, independent, nonprofit. We have been overwhelmed by the interest in our services of late. We provide complementary therapies with volunteer practitioners. We are struggling to be able to provide our free services to over 300 active clients.

If you are interested in seeing our practitioners in their private practices we have provided their contact information. Click on “Integrative Program” at the top of the page and go to “Volunteers” on the drop down menu. Some take insurance, and some will give discounted rates to cancer patients and their caregivers. All our volunteers have been screened and their licenses/credentials verified.

If you have any questions please call my office, 760-536-7679.

Thank you,
Mary Hollander RN
SDCRI integrative Program Coordinator
