Together vs. Cancer Month: How can you get involved?
In one form or another, cancer affects everyone and can change the course of people’s lives forever. More than 1.7 million new cancer cases are expected this year alone. So, the big question is: how can you help fight cancer? You can’t hide from it and you can’t pretend it’s not there. The best way to fight it is to attack it together with everything we’ve got! Are you ready to go into battle? Because we are!
The second year of Together vs. Cancer is underway, and we’re ready to beat cancer! We’re dedicating this month—and every month—to encourage people around the globe to join us in the fight against cancer. Whether you choose to pay it forward, start a fighter fund or volunteer on our behalf, it’s that easy to fight cancer together. YOU can make a difference: since our inception in 2007, The HEADstrong Foundation has had the honor of helping 16,172 patients and counting.
Athletes around the country are Going Lime and pledging their stats this season to assist HEADstrong and families affected by cancer. This is a fantastic way for young athletes to get involved while playing the game they love. Now that spring sports are in session, we have already raised over $15,000. Not sure where to start? Take a look at our fundraising toolkit to help guide you through the process.
By becoming a partner, you can directly help cancer patients and their families. Our partnerships range from corporate sponsors and licensing agreements to in-kind donations. Our corporate sponsors make critical contributions to HEADstrong’s mission, while promoting a positive corporate image and engaging an audience tied to a cause affecting millions. Do you have an idea for a great product? A licensing agreement allows innovators to develop and bring to market a cause-related product(s) to generate awareness and funds for lives affected by cancer. Lastly, an in-kind donation allows individuals to play an active role in providing support for our operational initiatives.
What better way to fight cancer together than to be on the front lines of the battlefield? Volunteering your time allows you to meet our Heroes and directly help them and their families. Here at HEADstrong, our volunteer opportunities are endless. Whether you want to volunteer at one of our many events, at our office or at Nick’s House—our complimentary lodging facility for out-of-town patients and their families who are undergoing cancer related treatment in the Philadelphia area—we are always in need of a helping hand.
Fighting cancer TOGETHER
Shortly after being diagnosed with Diffuse Large B-Cell non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, our founder, Nicholas “HEAD” Colleluori realized the lack of resources for cancer patients and their families. From that moment on, it became his mission to make a difference in the lives of families that have been affected by cancer. By offering financial, residential and emotional support, we are able to help families that have been affected by cancer. There are endless ways to join our team and help us beat cancer once and for all. Visit our website today to learn all of the ways you can join the fight!
