Special Thanks

We are grateful to the individuals, organizations and businesses who so generously and enthusiastically support K-State cancer research and education. Here, we recognize a few outstanding supporters.

Sunny 102.5 FM supports our center in so many ways, including partnering with Coach Bill Snyder for the Wildcat Challenge to Tackle Cancer.

Local media outlets Manhattan Broadcasting, Alpha Media, Eagle Communications and Powercat Illustrated/GoPowercat.com support us throughout the year and especially during our fall Fighting for a Cure Shirt Day campaign!

We are also grateful to these other radio stations for airing our Bill Snyder public service announcement all over the state and beyond: 810 WHB AM Sports Radio in Kansas City, Ad Astra Radio, Connoisseur Media, Eagle Communications, Many Signals Communications, Rocking M Radio, Seward County Broadcasting and Mid-America Ag Network/Steckline Communications, as well as The Wildcat 91.9 at K-State.

Mason’s Wish

Mason’s Wish is the fundraising campaign of Mason Wolfe, a high school student whose father has been battling cancer since 2007. She and her mom Nancy sell candles and other items to raise money for our center. In 2009, at only 12 years of age, she made her first donation of $11,000! She has raised more than $20,000 for the center and is still going strong, with hope in a cure! She has won awards recognizing her charitable service, including the Everyday Hero Award presented by Denver Channel 7 (video below).
