WHY: The Cancer Support House is completely privately funded which is why fundraising events are so important! All funds raised help to provide free programs and services so that no cancer patient, survivor, or family member has to face the cancer journey alone.
This event raises funds to provide financial assistance for thousands of cancer survivors and their families, right here in our community! Survivors’ Challenge is a long-standing community favorite and is a Celebration of Life to honor those with any type of cancer and also honors the memory of so many loved ones lost to this disease.
Call for Vendors! Local businesses, artisans, health care enthusiasts, children’s groups, churches, nonprofits, and more, ask about a vendor booth! Survivors’ Challenge is the largest event of its kind in our area and is a fantastic opportunity to show your support of Cancer Survivors in our community while also showcasing your business.
Seeking Volunteers! There are many fun volunteer opportunities available to suit your schedule. This is a great opportunity for student groups, civic groups, church groups, etc. to invest a few hours of your time to benefit cancer survivors in our community.

There are opportunities for every budget. Check out the sponsorship packages or let us know how we can work together to come up with something that works for you.

Since 1978 the Cancer Support House has offered a diverse range of services, from providing nutritional supplements, wigs, bras, and breast prostheses, to assisting with treatment transportation, cancer medication costs, free counseling services, and cancer screenings. No reimbursement is received from Medicare, Medicaid or any insurance company, nor is the client charged for services provided. All funds raised remain entirely in Fort Smith and go to provide immediate support to cancer patients.
