There are many ways you can make a difference for cancer patients at Henry Ford Cancer. Whether you prefer to join a fundraising team, make a one-time gift or become a volunteer, you will have an impact on cancer patients in the communities we serve—and beyond.

Game On Cancer

Every year, hundreds of community members like you form Game On Cancer teams to raise money in support of patient transportation, medication, research and other critical needs. The Game On Cancer season culminates in the late fall with a celebration at Ford Field and features meet-and-greets with Detroit Lions players, dinner and more.
