Cancer is Personal to Us! Is it Personal to You?

Cancer does not discriminate... it affects 1 in 3 people. We, at The H Foundation, are united by the common goal to make a difference in the fight against cancer. We commit our time and resources because cancer is personal to each of us.

The Goombay Bash is one of Chicago's largest and liveliest cancer research fundraising events. But it's not just your typical fundraiser... it's a Caribbean-themed festival to find a cure for cancer. Leave your tuxes and high heels at home! It's time for Hawaiian shirts and leis!

Since 2001, The H Foundation has raised over $11 million donating nearly every dollar raised to the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. These funds are used as seed money for basic science cancer research projects to help them compete for additional government or private funding. As a result, our donations have been leveraged into over $250 million of research dollars towards finding a cure.

Together We Can Make a Difference!
