Bite Me Cancer Foundation Attitude is everything; join us!
(45)

Bite Me Cancer is a 501(c) 3 organization. Our goal is to raise money to fund thyroid cancer research, to raise awareness of thyroid cancer, which is the fastest growing cancer in the country and to support/inspire teens who are surviving all kinds of cancer. Our Teen Support Bags are distributed (for free) to teenagers battling all cancers in hospitals across the country. Accomplishments as of 10/2017: We have shipped out almost 3,600 bags to teenagers through almost 85 hospital partners in 35 states and DC. We have also funded 4 thyroid cancer research grants with a 5th being raised for now.

We are so excited about Bite Me Cancer being their charity-of-the-month for January! We hope that you can visit the Ono Brewing Company in Chantilly, VA, this month! https://www.onobrewco.com/

Happy New Year! We are closed today but want to take this opportunity to introduce you to our selected charity of the month for January. Each month we select a different local organization to support and this month, 50% of our tips for January will be donated to the Bite Me Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit foundation in Fairfax County, Virginia. Bite Me Cancer was born out of an identified gap in support for teens fighting cancer by Nikki Ferraro when she found herself in treatment for a rare form of thyroid cancer at just 17 years old.

The third week in January is Teen Cancer Awareness Week in Virginia. One of Bite Me Cancer missions is to provide teenagers with age-appropriate Teen Support Bags while they are battling cancer. Join us in supporting this worthy cause by visiting Ono Brewing in January.

Happy New Year!

The Greatest Showman's Keala Settle Had a Stroke a Week Before Singing at the Oscars

Wow! When we think we know someone famous through social media, this is a good example of how little we do know. We think she's enjoying fame and good fortune, and instead she's dealing with a stroke and major recovery! https://people.com/health/keala-settle-greatest-showman-stroke-week-before-oscars

Six months after undergoing a 10-hour double-bypass brain surgery to correct a lifelong brain disease, The Greatest Showman's Keala Settle is sharing her story for the first time to PEOPLE

Thank you to our Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and especially Supervisor Kathy Smith for the proclamation presentation to Bite Me Cancer this morning in honor of Teen Cancer Awareness Week coming up across Virginia on January 20-26, 2019. (Thank you to board members Dean Klein and Brian Kincaid for joining Michael and Sharon Ferraro!)

Bite Me Cancer initiated this awareness week back in 2014, presenting the request to the Commonwealth of Virginia General Assembly with the assistance of Delegate Ken Plum and Delegate Tom Rust.

Teenagers with cancer have unique challenges and deserve the specific support they need. (Our Teen Support Bags have gone to almost 5,200 teens with cancer across the country so far!)
