The official Fundraiser Party for the Team Tony Cancer Foundation is a fun, hip, and entertaining evening that includes creative cuisine, live music provided by Yaya Diamond and The Dream Chasers, and phenomenal silent and live auction items.
Three words that can stop time and change your life in an instant: “You have cancer.” The shock is indescribable. You may experience a myriad of emotions, fear, sadness, and denial. This is normal. Now imagine that someone reaches out to you and says, “I’ve been there; I can relate to what you’re going through, and I’m here for you.”
In Florida, over 100,000 people will be diagnosed with cancer this year. At Team Tony, we believe that no one should have to fight cancer alone. Our mission is to provide free peer-to-peer cancer support and resources to cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers in our local community.
JACKETS and JEANS benefits Team Tony Cancer Foundation’s critical mission of providing free peer-to-peer cancer support and resources. Our peer-to-peer mentoring program matches a trained volunteer cancer survivor with a recently diagnosed cancer patient or caregiver who is in need of support. Referred to as a Teammate, a Team Tony volunteer mentor is someone who can relate to the newly diagnosed cancer patient or caregiver. Team Tony Teammates offer support, knowledge, encouragement, and inspiration every step of the way. Since 2016, we have matched over 500 cancer fighters and caregivers in the Tri-County with Team Tony teammates and provided over $210,500 in medical grants to help alleviate the financial burden that comes with a cancer diagnosis.
