Cancer Connection is able to offer all its programs and services free of charge because of the generosity of our community. We receive no funding from state or federal governments, the United Way or the American Cancer Society. Instead, we are supported through individual donations, grants from foundations and businesses, and community benefits like the ones listed here.

The Amherst College Women's Hockey team will turn the rink pink to support Cancer Connection.
The women will be playing against their rival William's College in a prime time slot to raise money in support of Cancer Connection. The team will be wearing their special Pink in the Rink jerseys and Cancer Connection staff will be on-hand to share information about our free services and programs for those in attendance. Throughout the evening there will be special fundraising opportunities. Past events have included a bake sale, a "Chuck-a puck" and an amazing silent auction. This video from the 2015 Pink in the Rink will make you appreciate these incredible athletes and their support even more.
Join us at the Orr Rink at Amherst College to cheer on the Women's team as they compete against the Ephs of William's College and raise funds to support our center.

No more cold weather camping for Monte. At least not this year. THIS year it’s Cancer Connection Summercamp. Still to benefit Cancer Connection. This time, no igloo.
Monte and his intrepid campers were out on the courthouse lawn in the warmth of July - Summer Camp for Cancer Connection!
Every dollar they raised went directly to support Cancer Connection. Here's how you can help.
Missed your chance to give during the event? You can make a contribution through our PayPal page and tell us which camper you want to support.
