Fishing For A Cure
Join Team Fishing For A Cure and participate in Champion the Cure Challenge 2021 on August 15th!
Team Fishing for a Cure celebrates the life of Brandon Washburn. In May of 2013, at the age of 25, Brandon was diagnosed with cancer. He battled cancer with admirable strength and courage and was very passionate about giving back, even while facing his battle. One way Brandon thought about others and was committed to making a difference in the fight against cancer was by starting team Fishing for a Cure in the summer of 2013. Brandon heard about Champion the Cure Challenge while receiving treatment at the Lafayette Family Cancer Center and wanted to give back by supporting local cancer research. As Brandon’s cancer progressed Brandon expressed his wishes for his team to continue. With amazing support from family and friends his wish and his memory will continue to live on.
