About Cats vs Cancer

Cats vs Cancer is a non-profit site, run entirely by volunteers, built to help those battling cancer. Each month they take money raised through ads sold on the site, as well as your donations, and give that to a cancer charity.

Our mission is to be the most entertaining and fun charity on the planet. They do this by curating the most hilarious, adorable, and captivating cat-things from around the web for your enjoyment and viewing pleasure.

Partnership with Alaska Air Flies Surgery Recipient to Washington

My Hope Chest’s Alliances Help Change Lives in America

Making Women Whole Again

Carleen Hobbs AK

Diagnosed at 30, a young breast cancer survivor and mother of 5 and living in remote Nome, AK, Carleen had no resources to restore her breasts, after the devastating decision to remove them to save her life.  The good news… she found Hope when she found My Hope Chest. 

Thanks to our wonderful partnership with Alaska Air’s Angel Flight which donates air travel for medical needs like Carleen’s, on May 18th, she was whisked to our surgeon partner Dr. Jan Zempleni in Seattle, Washington!  Now onto her 2nd surgery with My Hope Chest, and 3rd step of breast reconstruction overall, she is one step closer to feeling complete.

Americans have the biggest hearts in the world… We are thrilled for Carleen and blessed to be a part of her journey and closure from cancer very soon.
