In 2016, as way to provide more therapies to cancer patients, Touched by Cancer established an annual tailgate in South Bloomfield, OH.  The tailgate occurs during the Ohio State football season.  100% of the profits go towards massage and yoga therapies for cancer patients. 

Consider sponsoring or donating to this worthy cause.  We are actively seeking sponsors as well as donations for the silent auction and raffle.  If you are interested in being a part of this event Contact Us.
