Why do we Exist?
To help people overcome the everyday barriers that cancer creates through
increased access to the research and assistance they need.
Who do we Help?
How do we Help?
Through our local strategic partnerships, we work to provide simple & direct solutions to needed resources
for individuals & families with cancer. We collaborate with organizations that are equipped to identify the obstacles that prevent individuals from receiving treatment. We exist to fund cancer programs, promote cancer prevention, drive awareness, provide research and pilot funding; all with the goal to improve the quality of life for individuals, families, and communities throughout the Deep South.
Deep South Cancer Foundation's signature event, Magic City Cycliad, gives 100 % of rider raised money to
The UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center to fund local cancer research.
Deep South Cancer Foundation partners with local hospitals to provide gift cards distributed to patients by nurses, doctors, social workers, and patient navigators to meet basic life needs.
Deep South Cancer Foundation collaborates with other local non-profits to fund programs such as The Journey of Courage and Hope that meet needs within the community .
The Deep South Cancer Foundation is the only regional non-profit that partners at the local
level with hospitals and other non-profits who work to overcome the daily barriers that
cancer creates, improving the quality of life for individuals and families as they navigate
all types of cancer today and tomorrow.

How is all this possible?
Deep South Cancer Foundation is grateful for our corporate partners that make helping
possible. We partner with great brands who share our values and want to make helping easy. Together, we tell our shared stories through unique ways at our events. We do this in person,
in print, in video, and via social media. We do this by putting an emphasis on visual content
and giving people an environment to share their own story. Cancer is personal and we are
deeply interested in hearing why people help.
