Why:Our goal for the Fox CHASE AWAY CANCER Event is to provide a one day celebration
and recognition of Fox Chase Cancer Center employees who continually fight cancer
every single day for us and our families and those who have been or are currently
being treated at Fox Chase. We invite and welcome all FCCC employees, former and
current patients of FCCC, and the surrounding community to join us in this one day
celebration so we may feel the power, courage, and human spirit that has moved those
affected by cancer to continually fight for their life. Bring your friends, bring
your family, bring anyone who has joined you in the fight against cancer. We are
in this together and it is time to CHASE AWAY CANCER for good!
Proceeds: The event proceeds are split in order to benefit both patient care at
Fox Chase Cancer Center and HCM Foundation programs.
