Who we are
We are a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to Rock County, WI residents fighting cancer. The coalition was founded by a group when a friend was struggling with cancer. Acting on their belief that Rock County is a caring and compassionate community, they formed a coalition of people who joined to raise funds for local people facing cancer. What started as a vision, has since grown into a county wide coalition of people helping community members fighting cancer. And the tenants of “caring, community, compassion” became the fundamental principles of the organization.
Since incorporating as a 501c3 in 2010, the coalition has raised over $1,100,000 and helped more than 1,600 people. We provide grants of $1,125 to Rock County residents currently in treatment for cancer. These grants can be used for rent/mortgage, utility, phone/cable/internet, insurance, and car payments. Assistance is available once every 12 months while the patient is receiving treatments.
