Making A Difference in the Lives of Children & Families
Affected by Cancer in our Community

About Us

The California Cancer Crusher began in 2012 as a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to make a difference in the lives of children and families affected by cancer in our community. Each member of our organization has a strong passion for supporting our community in the fight against cancer. The California Cancer Crusher’s focus is raising funds to help with the financial burden that cancer places on families. The money raised by our organization supports a variety of cancer-related causes. More than half of the funds raised each year stays in our local community and is used for the California Cancer Crusher Local Assistance Program, the California Cancer Crusher Scholarship Fund, donations to the Breast and GYN Health Project, St. Jude Children’s Hospital and the American Cancer Society.

What We’ve Done

Wings for a Cure is the California Cancer Crusher’s main fundraising event followed by the California Cancer Crusher’s annual Golf Tournament. The California Cancer Crusher has had the pleasure of helping others with their cancer-related fundraising events such as: Spa for a Cure which helped bring 3D mammography to Humboldt County, Hops and Cops, Guns and Hoses, St. Jude Radiothon, St. Jude Walk, Relay for Life, provided support to the Evergreen Lodge for cancer patients and numerous local family fundraisers throughout the years. In 2018, the California Cancer Crusher created its Art from the Heart project to support, honor, heal and inspire cancer survivors and document their journey through art. In addition, the California Cancer Crusher participates in many community events raising awareness for our cause. You may see us at the Redwood Acres Fair and many events hosted at Redwood Acres, the annual Christmas Trucker Parade, Henderson Center Open House and many more.
