About Us

Wine For Cures raises awareness and provides funds for cancer projects using the cultural, entertainment and health values of wine to lead our fun-filled events. We produce and participate in very enjoyable projects and events that meet our mission –raising money for a wide range of cancer projects. 


Wine For Cures, a 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profit corporation, was founded to promote more cancer education, awareness and raise the needed financial support for continuous cancer research to find better treatment options for cancer suffers and save lives. There are several ways to help: (1) Your contributions of money, (2) We accept in-kind gifts of usable goods and services, (3) We accept contributions of property, vehicles, real estate, stocks and other items of value or (4) attend an event.

Wine for Cures cares deeply about all cancers and the potential to cure cancer.  Is that potential a dream?  NO, it’s a very real and serious possibility.  Huge leaps of progress have already been made over many decades of experiments and treatments. Yet, it’s not enough.  We must do more.  The simple fact is … millions of people suffer and die with some form of cancer every day, every year.  Nearly 600,000 per year.  It is an equal opportunity disease … it’s not selective and we are all at risk.

Radiation Treatment

Cancer treatments to people in the United States costs over $125,000,000,000. The astronomical losses due to lack of productivity, mortality and other shortfalls push total losses to the U.S. economy to nearly Three Hundred Billion Dollars ($300,000,000,000). These figures are just money … what price do we assign to the loss of a family member, a child or the care, affection and financial support forever taken from a child whose parent has been disabled or died from this killer?

The high costs of dealing with all cancers puts our nation at great financial risk. Curing cancer should be a national priority for all Americans. Government is not the entire answer.  Each citizen needs to take action to fight off this thief. Nearly half of all Americans are diagnosed with cancer. For the other half, it’s just a matter of the right genes, environmental exposures, diet and pure luck.

 

Big numbers: 1:2 men and 1:3 women in the United Sates will develop some form of cancer in their life time.   In 2010, 600,000 Americans died from cancer and 7,000,000 died world wide, according to a leading oncologist and author of  “The Emperor of All Maladies”: A Biography of Cancer published in 2010. Powerful stuff, read it!

Cancer cells are found in all of us. Cancer is a disease where certain cells in your bodies undergo out-of-control abnormal growth. Often, this deadly process by cancer cells is caused by damaged or a defect in the cells’ DNA. These cells come and go from our bodies on a daily basis, yet almost half of us have or have had some form of cancer, that’s a staggering percentage. The other half is waiting in line.

Leukemia Cell

For example, about 30,800 new cases of Leukemia, a deadly blood cancer, are diagnosed annually. About 21,700 victims die each year, a 70.5% death rate. Only research and aggressive treatment will save lives. Millions suffer with cancer, in fact, approximately 47% of the population is diagnosed with some form of cancer. What’s more amazing, all of us have cancer cells cycling through our bodies every day. These rogue cancer cells are looking for a host or home, a place in your body to set-up shop.

Wine for Cures expects to do just that, by providing education and the very important funds for more research and treatment options. Importantly, we want to have fun doing it, through creative fundraising, fabulous events and wine-related merchandise.

Wine for Cures is working!  The action demanded is to raise the very needed and necessary financial means to invest in cancer research.  Research is the fastest route to the best treatment options, remissions and hopefully, the ultimate cure and prevention.  Every dollar saves lives!
