Why am I raising money?

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States and one of the most devastating of all illnesses. Every year, it claims the lives of more than a half million across the country. But cancer can be prevented and treated. The Cancer Care Center at Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital provides total quality cancer care in a caring, compassionate environment. Help us continue to provide this great care to the thousands in our community touched by cancer each year by supporting Wheeling & Heeling for Cancer.
