About the event

Help Wicklund Warriors continue their crucial support for individuals facing temporary unemployment during their blood cancer treatments by donating to our cause during the 518 Day of Giving, from May 4th to May 18th. Our mission is to bridge financial gaps for families dealing with cancer, allowing them to focus on healing without added financial stress.

Founded by Deanna Wicklund in 2013 after her battle with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Wicklund Warriors has supported over 160 families in the capital region, providing over $200,000 in tailored aid. We aim to ensure individuals can access resources to navigate treatment effectively and regain financial stability post-treatment.

Donate from May 4th to May 18th, 2024, for the 518 Day of Giving. Your donation will make a real difference in the lives of those fighting cancer. Together, we can ensure #NoOneFightsAlone.
