We are designed around bringing the experience of others and the resources of the community straight to people affected by cancer. We utilize the power of social networks and personal blogs to connect people who need to be supported.
Our UW-Whitewater counterpart has an ambition to raise money for both local and national charities, as well as bringing outreach directly to cancer fighters. We hope you find the information here helpful, and we wish you a better tomorrow.
Founder, President - The Cancer Fight Organization of UW-Whitewater
My name is Mark Liederbach. In December of 2010, I was diagnosed with stage 2 testicular cancer. On this blog, feel free to browse the growing list of pages, discussions, and links. I use this site to document my progress through this rather tough period of my life. In addition to my personal blogging, this website serves as a place dedicated to fundraising for other organizations and events associated with The Cancer Fight Organization at the Universtiy of Wisconsin - Whitewater.
