WHO WE ARE
Spierings Cancer Foundation provides financial support to local families affected by cancer, enhances medical care for cancer patients in the Fox Cities and funds cancer research in Wisconsin.
Jim and Sue Spierings, from Little Chute, Wisconsin, created the foundation in 2009. After Jim won his battle with throat cancer, they decided to give back to the community who supported him during his battle.
Over the past 14 years, the foundation has raised more than 2 MILLION dollars to support its mission of helping people affected by cancer, including over 700 local families.

We provide grants for important cancer research, specifically clinical and/or translational research, along with those in need of funding.
