Welcome to the
Gavers Community Cancer Foundation
Celebrating 14 years of raising cancer awareness in McHenry County

Inspired by our leader Steve Gavers, the Gavers Community Cancer Foundation was founded 14 years ago to make a difference in the fight against cancer.

When you support the Gavers Community Cancer Foundation you are helping us in our mission to:

1. Raise cancer awareness through education and screenings by

+ Providing funding for 'Get Checked' screenings offered by Centegra and Family Health Partnership

+ Providing funding to establish the cancer library at the Centegra Sage Cancer Center

+ Providing funding for sun safety programs at local grade schools

2. Improve cancer care for local residents by

+ Funding the establishment of the Centegra Gavers Brest Center in Crystal Lake

+ Providing start-up funding and support for Centegra Survivorship Training and Rehab (STAR) program

+ Provide funding for services to cancer patients and their families at the Wellness Place

3. Raise funds for cancer research by partnering with the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund to support cancer research at Rush University Medical Center


Our foundation is 100% volunteer meaning we provide 100% of event proceeds to our key partners, Centegra, RUSH, Family Health Partnership Clinic and the Wellness Place.


Want to support Gavers? Donate online and mark your calendar for Barndance 2014!

Over the past 14 years we have raised $5 million towards cancer research and awareness programs during the Barndance - our annual summer party and fundraiser - and this year is shaping up to be an event you won't want to miss.

This year's Barndance is July 19th, so come out for a great time and a great cause!
