The Tackles4Cancer mission is to improve the quality of life for cancer patients through transportation. We organize fundraisers, and community-building events to support our mission.
The National Cancer Institute reported that 20% of cancer patients will cancel or delay treatment due to lack of transportation resources.

Since 2014 Tackles4Cancer has supported efforts directly and indirectly raising over $250,000. 90% of the funds benefitted local charities and communities. We have also accounted for over 400 community hours.
"The game of life is like the game of football, you have to tackle your problems, block your fears, and score your points when you have a chance."
Dr. Michelle Ludwig discusses transportation challenges for cancer patients undergoing treatment in support of Tackles4Cancer. Dr Ludwig is an Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology at the Baylor College of Medicine Dan L Duncan Cancer Center, A National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated cancer treatment facility.
A tale inspired by a true story!
The Founder of Tackles4Cancer co-wrote this story with six-year-old Van Johnson who was diagnosed with cancer while undergoing a routine physical for a flag football league in Sugarland, Texas. It is a battle that no six-year-old child should have to face.
Tackle 19 enables us to partner with communities and sports organizations to purchase a mask for themselves or sponsor masks for cancer patients and caregivers.
It would've been very challenging for me to have gone through cancer treatment without Tackles4Cancer providing transportation. ---Chris
