We Are Courage Thru Cancer.

Courage Thru Cancer is a 501(c)(3) organization of families forged together through a shared battle dedicated to encourage and inspire those who are forced to face this disease.  By sharing individual life experiences with others who are facing this battle, CTC exists not only as a living tribute but also to ensure that no story goes untold.

We Are Courage Thru Cancer

Courage Thru Cancer is a communal site for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer. This site is not trying to raise money for cures for any specific type of cancer. We hope to inspire and encourage those whose lives have been turned upside down by this disease. Through Courage Thru Cancer, we have created a vehicle where anyone can search for a type of cancer, view stories about our honorees’ battles, and see how their fight impacted others. 

If one person is touched by a story we share and it gives them the roadmap on how to fight and help others through their fight, then our efforts are worth it.

Are donations prioritized?

We have some established event-specific fundraisers, but our general donations are not attached to any one organization or group.
