THE STORY:

 

After being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Seth Grumet was buoyed by the presence of family and friends. But he noticed that many of the patients undergoing treatment alongside him did not enjoy the same support system. So, he set out to create one.

In 2010, Grumet founded Stomp The Monster, a nonprofit organization that enhances the quality of life for patients undergoing cancer treatment. The organization provides gift cards for gas and groceries, arranges taxis to and from medical appointments, works to ensure utility bills are paid, and helps with Medigap payments to keep treatment going, among other tasks.

“All those in treatment with me were the true inspiration to form the foundation. The strength and determination shown through the toughest times are the reasons Stomp The Monster is able to continue to grow,” says Grumet, who also credits the time and energy given by volunteers.

Over the last four years, the nonprofit has distributed aid totaling more than $500,000 to more than 1,000 families. In 2013 alone, the group distributed $241,578 to 468 families.
