About This Activity

Fundraising event to help families during their cancer fight!
We have 2 families this year that we are raising funds for. Please take the time to read the stories and then sign up for this event! 1. O'Brien Family - 10 year old, Evan, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma at Halloween. He has spent all his days since his diagnosis battling this disease at the hospital and home with rigorous chemo treatments. As of early June, treatment is complete, and final tests show no signs of cancer! Unfortunately, the family's insurance will not cover all of the doctors' recommended treatments for Evan. To any parent, grandparent or anyone that has children in their lives, we can imagine what a nightmare this would be.  2. Graf Family - Husband and father, Doug Graf, was diagnosed with esophageal cancer on December 27, 2013.  Tests showed the cancer was stage three and that lymph nodes were affected. Because of this, Doug has had to undergo very intense and aggressive treatment including radiation, chemo, and surgery.  Because of his condition, Doug has been unable to work since December. The insurance he had is now denying all the claims. The family is in the midst of fighting with the insurance company.  The bottom line is they need our help! So please come out and help No One Fights Cancer Alone raise funds for these family and support their needs during this fight! Thank you again for all of your support!
