Proceeds from 20 Years of ACW will benefit the Fund for Champions which offers modest financial support for the working poor and under-insured cancer patients. The ACW has now been able to expand its services to help people who are treated for multiple types of cancer in multiple treatment facilities. The monetary value of the grants has increased and the organization’s reach has grown from predominantly Tucson to patients from all over Southern Arizona who have traveled to Tucson for treatment.
