Care Packages - Upon receipt of nomination information, a crafted care package created by our Founder Jeanne Wokurka (to the left) and her daughter Emma, will be mailed out at no cost to the recipient or their caregiver(s). It's a little box with inspirational oddities and a whole lot of heart! Currently shipping only to US Residents.
Mentors - Questions are of plenty when going through treatment. We want to be here to help, even if it is to just text message inspiration. We all need to be inspired at times, especially when going through cancer treatment.
Online Boutique - Many donate items they used during treatment, and were kind enough to share them with us so we can share them with you!
On-Site Boutique - Coming soon!

The Fight Club Survivor Statements -
Slogan: Where your attitude is everything.
Description: Fight Club Survivor is an organization that ships inspirational care packages to women who are currently battling breast cancer. Also offering an online boutique and mentors.
Mission: Our mission at “Fight Club Survivor” is to inspire, supply and mentor.
6-17-2019 Jeanne was nominated by Franciscan Health, sponsored by VITAS for the 2019 Courage Award! While she was unable to give her "thank you" speech due to her over abundance of tears, we all knew she felt the love and gratitude in her heart. It was a great evening for all, especially Jeanne. "I met some very beautiful ladies that night, from both Franciscan Health and VITAS. It was such an honor."
Because there currently is no charge to receive a care package, we continue to need your support. Every donation, no matter how large or small, will help us to continue shipping out these care packages at no cost. Every dollar donated goes back into the organization to continue shipping out care packages for free. No amount goes into the pocket of any of our board members. We have an open book policy and are more than happy to share.

We frequently run fundraisers to assist in raising money to help with future product purchases, organizational expenses, and shipping of more care packages! If you're local and would like to get in on the up and coming fundraisers, you can find us on Facebook here.
There are hundreds upon thousands every day diagnosed with breast cancer. If you know a Survivor who is currently battling the breast cancer beast or soon to be, please click here.
Thank you so very much in advance. Your help is greatly appreciated not just by those of us at FCS, but by the many women (& men) recently diagnosed.
