We Are Cancer Fighters!

From one cancer fighter to another, we are about providing support and insight into the day-to-day of the battle through diagnosis, treatment and survival for cancer fighters, their friends, family and medical teams.

The Why? Foundation is a cancer fighting network created by Allison W. Gryphon and her friends as a response to her April 2011 stage 3a breast cancer diagnosis.

We are about supporting people through their cancer fight on the ground level, day-to-day, hour-to-hour, minute-to-minute. There are no rules here. No judgments. No “musts”. We understand that many times just putting your feet on the floor to get out of bed is just as challenging as climbing a mountain. Cancer isn’t easy. This team believes that when you or someone you love is fighting cancer you get to feel however you want to feel. Say whatever you need to say. Be angry. Be sad. Be pissed. Be happy. Be defeated. Be inspired. Be educated. Be crazy. And be everything all at once. The Why? Foundation is for everyone. 

The cancer battle is a process and so is the evolution of The Why? Foundation. We are continually growing and learning and we want to hear from you! Please contact us with your story or with what you'd like to see us cover at
