Athletes vs. Cancer provides financial grants to assist families with the costs of medical bills, treatments and medication. We also provide experiences and facilitate opportunities for youth and young adult patients, that allow them to socialize with fellow patients, within their peer group, outside of the medical facilities.
WHAT WE DO
NBA Athlete, Matt Barnes of the Los Angeles Clippers, founded Athletes vs. Cancer in memory of his mother, Ann Catherine Barnes, who passed away twenty-six days after being diagnosed with four types of cancer in November of 2007. Ann's passing was abrupt and devastating to her family and friends, which led Matt to wanting to prevent others from losing a loved one without having the opportunity to receive the knowledge and proper resources that can assist in early detection and thorough treatment.
In 2008, Matt launched Athletes vs. Cancer worldwide, teaming up with professional athletes and celebrities that shared his goal to educate and bring awareness to communities and to motivate people to get regular cancer screenings.
A voice and the ability for outreach are the most powerful tools one can have, therefore, Matt and Athletes vs. Cancer continue to use theirs to assist in saving lives.
