The Shawn Felty Cancer Fund is a 501c3 organization focused on raising awareness and money for Chrons disease and colorectal cancer research.
The fund is named for Shawn Felty who courageous fought cancer with a postive and a never quit attitude. Once diagnosed, he had a passion for working towards finding a cure for colon cancer and raising awareness. We hope to keep Shawn’s spirit alive and will not stop fighting until we find a cure.
The Shawn Felty Cancer Fund mission is to reduce the suffering of cancer patients and their families by meeting their unfulfilled needs. The Shawn Felty Cancer Fund provides funding for research and educational programs throughout the community in an effort to improve the cancer patient’s quality of life. Founded in 2010, The Shawn Felty Cancer Fund is seeking to improve survivability rates throughout the area by providing relief and by increasing understanding and participation in early detection, prevention, and cancer treatment programs. In order to help find tomorrows cures, our goal is to fund a number of oncology researchers and institutes in the United States.
It is our hope that these funding initiatives will bring us closer to discovering the causes and developing the cures for the more than 100 diseases that are cancer. Shawn’s dream and our mission of finding a cure for cancer can best be accomplished through funding essential Crohn’s and Colon cancer research.
