The average family battling cancer ends up $50,000 in debt. 1 in 10 loses their home.
From Josh Collins, Kicking Cancer Founder. “I know first hand just how hard it is. I lost my Dad to Cancer April 8th 2009. I watched as my mom had to work a full time while taking care of my dad, it took a huge toll on my mom. We searched all across North America for help. There’s not much out there. Kicking Cancer and the Ron Collins Foundation are going to change this.”
The Board of Directors of the Ron Collins Foundation will oversee the evaluation of recipients and the disbursement of funds. Funds raised will be dedicated to the province or city where they were raised.
A disastrous knee injury dashed his dreams, but a new mission soon became his passion after his own father and biggest fan passed away from cancer. Josh looked far and wide to find support for his mother and found none. His family felt alone while over 1000 people attended his father’s celebration of life.
This year, the father of 4 has now become a crusader to help other families so they will not feel left alone in this time of need.
