Cowboys Against Cancer was established in 1994 as a non-profit corporation that is organized exclusively for charitable purposes to raise funds for disbursement to Sweetwater County residents diagnosed with cancer.

Funds shall be disbursed to cancer patients and their families to assist with travel expenses between Sweetwater County and other areas for medical treatment and/or for the development of cancer treatment facilities in Sweetwater County.  Since its inception, Cowboys Against Cancer® has given out grants to serve hundreds of local cancer patients.

Cowboys Against Cancer is a non-profit volunteer organization. Volunteers serve with no monetary compensation. Additionally, we are proud of the fact that Cowboys Against Cancer has no paid staff and minimal overhead. Thereby, maximizing donations available to be given as grants to local cancer patients! As such, we’re always seeking volunteers and contributions. If you’d like to help, contact us!
