Founded in 2009 by Jim & Sue Spierings, after Jim survived Stage IV Tongue/Throat Cancer. Inspired by the support they received from the community while Jim was sick. The foundation holds an annual fund raiser called Rock Cancer. Rock Cancer is an all day concert held at Doyle Park in Little Chute to raise money to fund our mission. 100% of the money raised is turned back into the local community to provide grants to families struggling financially due to Cancer; provide grants to the local hospital/Cancer centers with a goal of enhancing cancer treatment in the Fox Cities; and support Cancer research in the State of Wisconsin. Since its inception the Foundation and Rock Cancer has raised almost $1,000,000 and has provided grants totaling over $380,000 to more than 350 families. We have provided grants to local Cancer centers totaling over $225,000. And we have provided research grants to the universities, hospitals and clinics in the state of Wisconsin of over $120,000. We also support programs like the YMCA’s LiveStrong and StayStrong program for cancer survivors trying to gain back the strength lost during treatment. Our motto is Make A Difference, Help a Family, ROCK CANCER.
