    About the Connecticut Cancer Foundation

    The Connecticut Cancer Foundation (CCF) was founded in 1987 by Connecticut native John Ellis, former Major League Baseball player and cancer survivor, to provide economic assistance and compassionate financial aid to cancer patients and their families in his home state.  

    CCF is a unique organization in Connecticut, providing direct financial assistance to Connecticut cancer patients for everyday living expenses such as rent/mortgage, utilities, car payments, medical co-pays, food, medications and more.  

    As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, CCF has quietly granted over $6 million to more than 7,000 Connecticut families dealing with the financial hardships while going through cancer treatment. In addition, the CCF has donated more than $2.1 million to support ongoing cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. 

    We are excited to host our annual Fishing Against Cancer Tournament and all funds raised through tournament entry fees will support the work of CCF.
