History of Rally Against Cancer
Rally Against Cancer was created out of the love for a mother, Helen Hampton, who lost her battle with cancer in 1997. Her daughter, Kim Johnson, was so impressed with the treatment, compassion and overall coordinated care that her mother and her family received during Helen's battle with cancer that she approached the John Stoddard Cancer Center about establishing an event to raise money and awareness for the patients and families at John Stoddard Cancer Center.
This annual fundraising event includes a silent and live auction, dinner and presentation by a special guest speaker. Since 2000, Rally Against Cancer has netted over $3.5 million to support the programs and services John Stoddard Cancer Center provides to patients and families to help improve their quality of life throughout treatment and beyond.
