About Us

Our vision is grand:

To advocate and support world-class cancer care in Northwest Arkansas.


We are the connector that brings the community together to make our efforts stronger. We are collaborators…we are influencers…but we are also funders that support the prevention, treatment, and rebuilding of lives after cancer.

Since our inception in 1993, The Cancer Challenge has invested over $13.2 million in the Northwest Arkansas community for direct patient services such as: treatment & navigation, financial & emotional assistance, transportation, early-detection screenings & follow-up care, bereavement, charity care, tobacco prevention & cessation, community outreach, pediatric cancer care, and clinical trials.

We rely on the generosity of individuals, corporations, and foundations to help us further our mission. There are many ways to help whether you wish to sponsor or participate in an event, donate cash or products or give or your time and expertise.
