Fighting Cancer: Every Little Bit Helps

Times are hard. Many adults struggle to put food on the table and get 8 solid hours of sleep. You may think you aren’t in the position to donate. But what if every American dug in their couch and found a dollar in change to donate to fighting cancer? We would have over 300 million dollars! If you think your donation is too small to matter, think again. Every penny is important to cancer patients and their families. It adds up.

Giving matters. Any amount makes a difference, big or small. It feeds your soul to know that you are a part of the bigger picture. According to the American Cancer Society, American men have approximately a one in three risk of cancer during their lifetime. For women, the odds are only slightly lower. Those men and women who bravely fight in the war against cancer have children, spouses, parents, siblings, aunts, cousins, and friends who care about them. All people effected are desperate for a cure.

Maybe you’d like to do more. You would donate more money if you had it, but you just don’t. That is understandable! What about giving of your time and talents?

You don’t need money to:

  • Donate blood
  • Share fundraising information on social media
  • Donate hair
  • Volunteer
  • Spend time with a cancer patient

There are a lot of local opportunities to be a part of the fight against cancer. At Nancy Valenkamph Cancer Foundation, we have several ways to get involved and we always accept any size of donation. Call today to find out how you can help! 219-477-9826 or email us at
