The St. John Cancer Fund is a grassroots organization founded to ease cancer-related financial hardships for St. John residents and their families.
Since 2012, the Cancer Fund has raised over $700,000 to benefit residents of St. John in the battle with cancer. The St. John Cancer Fund's mission is to provide unrestricted financial assistance for St. John residents and their families during and after diagnosis and treatments.
On St. John, 75% of our residents are small business owners and independent contractors. Most do not have access to corporate or government offered insurance coverage, and individual health insurance policies are unavailable in the Virgin Islands.
The St John Cancer Fund’s mission is to invest in the health and well being of our community members who are fighting this terrible disease.
The Cruz Bay Music team is raising money for the Cancer Fund in Mikey P's memory and has a fundraising goal of $10,000. We will have 4 raffles for these items- (1) 65" TV, (2) a 7-night stay at a room at The Hills, (3) 2 3-day passes to the VI Jam Fest, and (4) a special Grassroots Chali 2na hat. The winners of the TV, VI Jam Fest passes and the 7-night stay will be announced at Light Up the Night. The winner of the Chali 2na hat will be announced during Chali 2na's set at the VI Jam Fest on March 7, 2020. Raffle tickets are $20 each. When you donate $20, please indicate which raffle you wish to enter. We will also be selling raffle tickets at our music events. Thanks very much!
