OUR MISSION IS TO HELP MICHIGAN RESIDENTS, WHO ARE DIRECTLY AFFECTED BY CANCER AND THEIR FAMILIES, BY PROVIDING FUNDS FOR PERSONAL AND RESEARCH GRANTS. OUR HOPE IS THAT A CURE FOR CANCER IS FOUND, SO THAT WE CAN ALL LIVE IN A CANCER-FREE WORLD.
Team LaFontaine UCanCerVive is a group of people passionate about funding cancer research in Michigan. Founded by Ryan & Kelley LaFontaine in 2014, it's our ongoing mission to provide support & funding to local cancer foundations. In the past six years, we've raised over $1,000,000 to support the fight against cancer. With your help, we'll continue to do so.
Key Services Provided:
- Provide grants to help fund cancer research that is conducted locally, in the state of Michigan.
- Supply personal grants for individuals living in Michigan who are currently fighting cancer.
- 100 percent of our proceeds are dedicated to this cause; our entire operation is staffed on a volunteer basis.
- Funds are raised by two annual events that we host.
"When I was diagnosed with hodgkin's lymphoma 7 years ago, my world was turned upside down. Thanks to the unselfish acts of so many who came before me, I was able to beat my cancer. It's our mission to pay it forward and help raise funds so others can get the same chance I did to survive cancer. #UCancervive" - Ryan LaFontaine
