Writers Unite to Fight Cancer (WUFC) was founded in June of 2010 by Pamela R. Goodfellow PhD and Margaret L. Turley. Our mission is to increase community awareness about cancer and raise money for cancer research.
The money we raise supports both local and national cancer research programs, and is occasionally donated to cancer patients to assist in obtaining the care they need.
Today’s cancer researchers are on the verge of life-saving discoveries. But what scientists desperately need are the funds required to mount an all-out assault against cancer. One in two men and one in three women will develop cancer during their life. This year, 1,529,560 people in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer, and more than 7.6 million people around the world will die from cancer.
Original members of the Writers Unite to Fight Cancer include: Anna Arnett, Barbara Lofgreen (deceased 2011 from stage IV Lung Cancer), Cindy R. Williams, Lisa Finder, Louise Laughlin, Margaret L. Turley, Nancy Lee Burns and Pamela R. Goodfellow. Authors who would like to join Writers Unite to Fight Cancer should contact Margaret L. Turley, Administrator, via email.
Writers who participate with our group receive their own author page on our website, and are invited to participate in local events when they are able. Most events are held in the Phoenix Metro Area and in Tucson. Writers Unite to Fight Cancer holds annual writing contests and publishes an anthology with the winning and finalist entries. Judging and production is done by volunteers from Writers Unite to Fight Cancer.
