Our Story

Friends for the Fight began with a desire to help alleviate some of the burdens of local families who are battling cancer in our region. While cancer research is of great importance, we wanted to raise money that went toward daily, practical needs of families. We desire to help with items like power bills, groceries, mortgage or rent payments, medications and gas for vehicles to make it to appointments and treatments.

Since 2017, we have raised over $60,000 for local cancer patients. 

Together, we partner with local businesses and corporations to ease the pressures of facing cancer. Friends for the Fight became a registered 501(c)3 organization in August 2017. All gifts and contributions are tax deductible.
