Why: Our goal for the Fox CHASE AWAY CANCER Event is to provide a one day celebration and recognition of Fox Chase Cancer Center employees who continually fight cancer every single day for us and our families and those who have been or are currently being treated at Fox Chase.  We invite and welcome all FCCC employees, former and current patients of FCCC, and the surrounding community to join us in this one day celebration so we may feel the power, courage, and human spirit that has moved those affected by cancer to continually fight for their life.  Bring your friends, bring your family, bring anyone who has joined you in the fight against cancer.  We are in this together and it is time to CHASE AWAY CANCER for good!

fcccLogoProceeds: The event proceeds are split in order to benefit both patient care at Fox Chase Cancer Center and HCM Foundation programs.
