The Molokai Cancer Fund is an organization formed by a handful of Molokai residents in 1995. It was started with a large monetary donation from someone who lost a family member to cancer. This person asked to remain anonymous and requested that all funds help the Molokai people.
In the beginning the organization worked out of a cash box as an office and ledger as a filing cabinet. They successfully helped cancer patients. Today, the Molokai Cancer Fund is incorporated with a 501 c3 nonprofit status.
The Molokai Cancer Fund wants to give Molokai people a fighting chance to deal with cancer. They can assist with air travel, ground transportation, lodging, and limited medication co-pay. Please help us help our community. Join the fight and raise awareness on Friday March 3 — Molokai people helping Molokai people.
