Where Does The Money Go?

Rock Cancer is Spierings Cancer Foundation’s primary fundraiser. During the 5th annual event, more than 5,000 people attended and it raised more than $108,000. From the past five years, Rock Cancer has raised over $400,000.

All of the proceeds are spent right here in Wisconsin. A majority of the donations are distributed in the Fox Valley area. With your help we’ve assisted 170 families with medicals bills, medicine, health insurance premiums, travel expenses and more. If you know of a family in need of assistance, complete one of our Grant Requests.

$87,6200 has gone to the hospitals in the Fox Cities. The funds have been used to purchase a variety of equipment. Along with an HD microscope, teleconferencing equipment and anti-nausea medication, the Spierings Cancer Foundations has financed massage therapy for patients currently fighting cancer.

The foundation has aided research ventures such as the Genetic Research/Counseling service at Affinity Health System. They’ve purchased a software program that links the genetic counselors at Affinity with the City of Hope Cancer Research Center in Duarte, CA.

The Spierings Cancer Foundation has provided funds to researchers at the University of Wisconsin Cancer Center’s Head and Neck Cancer Research Team and has aided the Medical College of Wisconsin Milwaukee for breast cancer research. The foundation is always looking to provide grants for cancer research. Click here if you would like to submit a proposal.

The Mission

In 2009, Jim and Sue Spierings started the Spierings Cancer Foundation. Jim won his battle with throat cancer and wanted to give back to the same community that supported him while going through treatment. The Spierings Cancer Foundation helps support families affected by cancer, enhances medical care for cancer patients in the fox cities, and funds cancer research in Wisconsin.

This local foundation helps over a hundred families in the area by assisting with medical bills, health insurance premiums and more. No matter what type of cancer, the Spierings Cancer Foundation is here to assist those affected.

They aid multiple hospitals, such as St. Elizabeth’s, with purchasing equipment, anti-nausea medication and massage therapy for patients fighting cancer. Their funds have also helped establish a Genetic Research/Counseling service at Affinity Health System. All of this is made possible by the proceeds of their annual fundraiser, Rock Cancer.
