Kearney Tackles Cancer

Kearney Tackles Cancer is a local organization that raises money to help those that are struggling financially while fighting this horrible disease. Funds donated to Kearney Tackles Cancer are deposited in the CHI Health Good Samaritan Cancer Patient Assistance Fund managed by the CHI Health Good Samaritan Foundation and are used to purchase gas cards, Buffalo Bucks and lodging vouchers.

What began in 2009 as a student-led and adult-sponsored group has grown tremendously in both community support and participation over the last 10 years. We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all those who have generously donated their time, talent and treasure towards our campaign in the past and to all those who will continue to show their support in the future!

Notes of Gratitude

"I am a single mom of a 9-year old son. I found out I have breast cancer and I’m not sure what I would have done without the money the Cancer Center offered me. Thank you many times."
"To all the students who worked so hard to help cancer patients: I had cancer in 2001 but went into remission. It came back in 2009 and I’ve been fighting since then. Thanks to all of you, I got my car fixed so I could get to my treatments. Please keep helping cancer patients."
"Thank you very much for the gift cards that paid my pharmacy bill so I could get my prescriptions filled again. It is very much appreciated."
"Dear students: When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I thought my life was over. So many emotions and concerns went through my mind. My first thought was of my 16 year old son and how I had to get well for him. Then came the worries about my job and finances. Your compassion and generosity for people you don’t know was overwhelming to me. Your gift cards for gas have taken a big worry from my mind. I can’t begin to thank you for your help or to tell you what it has meant to us. You are a wonderful group of kids."

Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth.
