To provide vital funding for cancer research to create a cancer free world.
U Can-Cer Vive is passionate about funding cancer research in Michigan. Founded by Ryan & Kelley LaFontaine in 2014, and officially becoming a 501c3 in 2016, it’s our ongoing mission to provide support & funding to local cancer grants.
The organization continues the tradition that began with Team LaFontaine in 2010 when Ryan and Kelley began working annually with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society after Ryan was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. During their partnership, Team LaFontaine raised over one-million dollars for the LLS.
With your help, we’ll continue to make an impact in the world of cancer resesarch.
