Thompson Cancer Survival Center Foundation
About Our Organization
The Thompson Cancer Survival Center Foundation was established in 1994 to provide ongoing support of the treatment efforts at the cancer center. Since that time, hundreds of generous individuals, companies and others continue to give to the Foundation in support of Thompson Cancer Survival Center. These gifts ensure leading-edge cancer treatment, clinical trials and technology advancements as well as services such as early detection; education and direct patient support are available and accessible to all people throughout our region regardless of their ability to pay.
Game On Against Cancer
This annual March event features celebrity matches on a variety of home gaming equipment, music, delicious food and beverages, and a fabulous selection of silent auction items. Game On Against Cancer’s proceeds support Thompson Cares, a fund that assists cancer patients in financial need with their basic living expenses. Thanks to your generosity, in the last ten years the event has raised more than $715,000!
Race Against Cancer
The Race Against Cancer is a 5K walk and run that raises funds for Thompson Cancer Survival Center’s Cancer Outreach Services program.
Since its inception 30 years ago, the race has raised over $7.5 million for cancer education and care in East Tennessee. Thanks to Race Against Cancer supporters and participants, thousands of medically under-served individuals have received life-saving screenings and information each year. Unlike some fundraisers, proceeds raised by the race go to fight cancer locally. Through prevention, early detection and education, we are saving lives. Come walk or run with us!
