Our Mission:

Cancer is a devastating, debilitating, exhausting, and all encompassing battle.  Each person affected by cancer has unique challenges and needs.  Fund The Fight is an organization that provides financial aid through fundraising and donations that is dispersed to adult cancer patients from Colorado with financial need to ease the burden of their battle.

What We Do:

We award a defined amount of money for specific patients as a one time payment through an application process for distinct needs.  Money is awarded on a rolling basis monthly depending on the  number of applications and funds available.  Unfortunately, not all applicants will be awarded.  The application will either be awarded money, not awarded, or rolled over to the next month for reconsideration.  One of those three decisions will be communicated to applicant.
