fxckcancer_imageInterview by Mark Abramson

The F C Cancer Foundation’s mission is to fight cancer by raising awareness and to educate about early cancer detection, ultimately putting an end to late stage cancer diagnosis. Through our DYIN 2 LIVE (Wish-Granting/Dream) program, we look to enrich the lives of those fighting cancer by offering them an experience that will bring joy, hope, inspiration, and courage to their lives. In doing this, the program hopes it can help give the patient a chance to forget, even if it’s only for a day what they are battling. We hope it can be used as a source of inspiration to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour.

“Fuck Cancer” was started in Huntington Beach, California by Brandon McGuinness after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2005. He was an avid surfer, skater, snowboarder, and loved by everyone who knew him. Brandon lost his life to cancer in 2007 at the very young age of 26 years old. He started the Fuck Cancer in order to help victims and their families battle this terrible disease. FxCK CANCER helps to fund the F C Cancer Foundation which is a non-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization with proceeds going towards raising awareness, education of early cancer detection, and helping victims along with their families deal with this on going epidemic through the DYIN 2 LIVE program. Join us in our fight! Continue Reading »
