About Us


Down Goes Cancer is 100% run by volunteers. The board of directors donate their time to drive awareness, raise funds, and lead the foundation.

The board strives to meet the organization's mission by hosting various fundraising events throughout the year. Proceeds will benefit local Montgomery County families suffering from the burdens of cancer, and lung cancer research organizations to help prevent and work towards a cure.
