Founded by siblings, Ryan and Kelley LaFontaine, it is the ongoing mission of the U CAN-CER VIVE Foundation to provide vital funding and support for local cancer research grants. Upon becoming an official nonprofit foundation in February 2016, U CAN-CER VIVE has raised over $500,000, providing funds for 13 research grants that are currently active in the State of Michigan. This passion toward the fight against cancer stems from the heart and soul of the LaFontaine’s commitment to give back after experiencing the affliction of cancer firsthand. Fundraising primarily takes place during the biannual events hosted by the foundation; 9&Wine golf outing in the spring and Cure&Couture event in the fall. All profits benefit U CAN-CER VIVE Foundation Tax ID #81-1127156.
