Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center

The UCI Health Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (CFCCC) is the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center in Orange County. As one of only 49 NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the country, CFCCC is a national leader in cancer research, education and treatment, and is designated as "comprehensive" which signifies that we have met rigorous criteria aimed at providing world-class patient care, innovative research, and the latest in treatment options.


The CFCCC is dedicated to providing comfort, compassion and, optimistically, a cure during one of the most difficult times of cancer patients' lives, as they bear the burden of the words, "You have cancer."


Our physicians and staff members have special expertise in breast, lung, gastrointestinal, colorectal, neurologic, gynecologic, urologic, orthopedic, head and neck, skin and liver cancers. We deliver personalized therapies and treatment with an interdisciplinary approach that brings together doctors and researchers from different disciplines to spark new ideas and improve patient care.


Please join us in our work by supporting Orange County’s only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center, allowing us to the most difficult to treat cancers than any other healthcare provider in our region. Through the generosity of people like you, last year alone we were able to offer over 160 therapeutic patient clinical trials for some of the most challenging cancers.


Susan D. Morrison attended one of our events at Monarch Beach in the beginning of the year. Susan was so moved after learning about the current projects at the UCI Health Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center that she was inspired to give $5,000. We hope that after you have read through this page and learned about the amazing work happening at our center, you will find it in your heart to do the same as Susan. We encourage and challenge you to exceed her generous gift amount today!


Your support offers our patients and their families hope – hope for today, tomorrow and beyond.
