The Spierings Cancer Foundation was founded in 2008 by Jim Spierings, a throat cancer survivor, to provide financial support for families affected by cancer, to enhance medical care for cancer patients in the Fox Cities, and to fund cancer research in Wisconsin. The Foundation has raised more than $500,000 since its inception. In the past three years, the Foundation has donated $18,000 for cancer research at the MCW Cancer Center.
