Game On Cancer: Team Tougher Together
Have fun while making a difference for cancer patients and families.
A cancer diagnosis is not only emotionally difficult, but it can also
take a toll on a family’s finances. Henry Ford Health’s Game On Cancer, in partnership with the Detroit Lions and the Detroit Pistons, raises money to alleviate barriers that cancer patients face on their road to recovery and funds research to find a cure.
Now in its sixth year, Game On Cancer has helped more than 10,000 cancer patients. It has helped patients get to and from their medical appointments, keep the lights and heat on in their homes, and paid for important prescriptions. Game on Cancer also has in the past sponsored innovative cancer research, important complementary therapies (such as acupuncture, massage and exercise) and survivorship groups, ensuring that all cancer patients have the support they need in their cancer journeys.
This year, Game On Cancer is recruiting new members for its survivor team Tougher Together. Teammates have fun raising money to support each other and cancer patients.
