Each year, approximately 1.65 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer and about 585,720 will die of the disease.
We hate cancer with a passion! Our top priority is for an understand that leads to the complete eradication of this disease. Raising awareness through education and research generates results to many of those suffering with this disease. We have lost too many of our friends, loved ones, and colleagues, every day because of this hated disease! Now more than ever, as government funding for cancer research is disappearing from the national agenda, every single one of us affected by cancer and must stand together and unite against this hated disease.
The H8 Cancer Foundation (H8Cancer.org) is a 501.c3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for research and to promote awareness of better treatment options to save lives. We are founded by members who are not satisfied with the lack of progress and the one-sided approach of funding cancer research.
TOMSTOCK is a grassroots initiative co-founded by Tom & Carman Duvall with Steve & Kiers Rowley to support the H8 Cancer Foundation.
