About Dance for a Cure
Dance for a Cure is an annual event and auction to raise awareness and support the fight against Cancer. Dance for a Cure was inspired over eight years ago by the Mo-dazz Executive Producer's sister, Tricia, who has had a nine year battle with cancer. Dance for a Cure is run by volunteers and has raised over Three Hundred Thousand Dollars for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Pete Gross House. Dance for a Cure has also inspired and empowered hundreds of young dancers and performers with the realization that they can make a difference.

Dance for a Cure (DFAC) is committed to raising research dollars to find the CURE and eradicate All cancer; support patients and family for those battling cancer. DFAC will shine a light on all cancer centered around its yearly benefit performance and auction. Through these efforts will raise over one million dollars in a ten-year period. These funds will fund research that will lead to the Cure of All cancer and prevention.Significant advances are being made in all research areas that include vaccines and site specific targeted chemo and radiation therapy to minimize negative treatment effects. DFAC, through contributions and awareness, will facilitate these advances and will create outreach programs to encourage their use. DFAC will encourage every individual be entered into the national gene database. Cell therapy and gene study can identify cancer before current medical therapies can detect its affect. This may be the definitive source to finding the cure and eradicate cancer. DFAC will aggressively work to increase awareness about cancer prevention. Education and nutrition can equal the advances achieved in medicine. DFAC will actively promote fitness, nutrition and healthy lifestyles. DFAC will lead the way for the establishment of May as CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. In collaboration with other cancer campaigns, we will establish this month to raise the collective awareness in finding a cure for all cancers.
