About Us

Our mission

If we don’t learn, grow and take action from our life experiences, only then can we feel regret.  We need to make meaning out of what feels like it is impossible to understand.  We need to rally, we need to partner together, and we need to fight.

When you hear the devastating word Cancer uttered from a doctors mouth, your world begins to spin.  You become empowered.  You become educated about the specific disease, you search for the best doctors, and you learn about ground breaking research.  Resources and access varies greatly, and in our darkest days, we need a community of light and support.  But we are also angry, and we want to tell Cancer to GFY.

GFYC Foundations mission is to support all those affected by the diagnosis of cancer.  To provide funding for research, financial and psychological support for patients and caregivers alike.  Tp provide hope when they need it most.  Because, ”hope is a good thing maybe even the best of things and good things never die.” — Shawshank Redemption

How we help

GFYC Foundation will fund research and caregiver support within the cancer community. 

We will work with both national organizations and local charities and together, the Board will determine how to allocate endowments accordingly.
