THE STORY:

Take the Fight Inc wrote -

Meet Miss Judy, a cancer patient

In 2013 she was diagnosed with a life-threatening cancer, just three months after the sudden death of her son. Upon diagnosis, she was rushed into cancer treatments and appointments--alone--often sitting by herself waiting up to 4 hours for her ride, to return home after undergoing intensive radiation and chemotherapy.

 

Meet Philippe, a college student

He volunteered to be paired 1on1 with Miss Judy to give her additional support in her fight against cancer. In between classes and studying, he joined her at doctors’ appointments and cancer treatments. He was by her side at chemo infusions, and they would cry together when the medical team would stick and stick, but couldn’t find a vein.

 

They’ve become like family

Fighting cancer together for more than a year and a half, neither of their lives will ever be the same.

 

This is just one of the many, special

student-and-patient bonds we’ve enabled

 

We are Take the Fight, an aggressive charity

We train top college students and pair them 1on1 with cancer patients. For 3 years we’ve helped cancer patients, and now we’re expanding to connect even more students, like Philippe, with even more patients, like Miss Judy, so no one will have to fight cancer alone.

 

We need your help to reach more cancer patients

This is our first-ever fundraiser.  Let’s TaketheFight to cancer.
