WHAT IS GAME ON CANCER?

Game On Cancer is a fun and impactful community initiative designed to alleviate barriers and challenges faced by cancer patients throughout Michigan. Since 2015, Game On Cancer has raised more than $6,000,000, 100% of proceeds directly benefiting patients, research and supportive oncology programs.

What makes us different?

  • 100% impact: 100% of funds raised directly benefit our mission and stay local
  • Funds raised through Game On Cancer help tackle the financial toxicity that families may experience after a cancer diagnosis by funding patient expenses such as: transportation, groceries, housing costs, prescriptions and medical supplies, co-pays, insurance and so much more
