A MESSAGE FROM ALLYSON WHITNEY FOUNDATION
AWF provides 'Life Interrupted Grants' to young adult patients battling rare cancers, to ease their financial burden, so they can concentrate on healing. We aid in a global wide research data base for a rare cancer SCCC, also providing HOPE comfort bags to oncology suites.
The organization is volunteer based and we are passionate about what we do.
There are 85,000 young adults (16-36) diagnosed every year in the United States. Cancer is a global issue. In 20 years, survival rates have not greatly improved for young adults battling cancer worldwide. There are limited resources for treatment and young adult cancer patients have unique needs. Young adults patients are caught between pediatric and adult care; in most cases the diagnosis is a rarer form of the disease.
Join our #AWFSQUAD and Run for a Cause & Get the Applause. Commit to raise a minimum of $1,200 and you receive guaranteed race entry, with an AWESOME FEELING as you help a cancer patient with a 'Life Interrupted Grant!'

Ally's words resonate with us still today,
"In order to go through this, you need to have HOPE."
