We know. Cancer isn’t any fun.

Some days it’s hard to deal with the stress, fear and sadness that even financial help cannot overcome.

Pay It Forward Fund wants you to take a day off from cancer. Enjoy this extra gift. Share it with family and friends, and don’t lose hope.

The original idea of giving women a fun experience came from two former PIFF board members, Stephanie Messmer, a joyful person who loved to laugh and always seemed to see the brighter side of life; and, JoAnn Simon, whose friends and family made the idea come to life by seeding the fund with a very generous donation.

We hope this brings a brief respite from the everyday grind of the fight against this disease.

“Cancer doesn’t care if you’re not having fun. We do.”
