Fight. Conquer. Cure.

Since 2007 we have raised over $400,00 for AYA Cancer Research. We have contributed to the organizations that conduct AYA Cancer Research like Huang Lab at the University Hospitals and Case Medical Center and the Angie Fowler Institute Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Initiative at University Hospitals of Cleveland. We desire to focus our support on important clinical research being conducted in NE Ohio where we reside.  We believe the research being conducted is and will make a difference in finding a cure for cancer. The monetary support helps to prevent the interruption in research being conducted in the laboratory. We cannot afford to have interruptions in AYA Cancer Research!

Our funding also pays for YA Cancer Survivors to attend conferences such as “Stupid Cancer” where the survivor can interact with others who have had similar experiences. We believe the self-esteem of the YA increases through participation in such unifying and validating programs and events.

The Wellness Program supports Pediatric and AYA Cancer patients in treatment. We provide nourishing snacks, information about wellness and cancer treatment, and most importantly the BE CALM STAY STRONG packages. The BE CALM STAY STRONG packages are distributed to YA Cancer patients with the assistance of area social workers at University Hospitals and the Cleveland Clinic.
