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!

Board Members

Jeanne Wokurka, Founder of Fight Club Survivor, Inc., battled her first fight with breast cancer in 2011.  It resurfaced not even 2 years later in 2014 where she then had to have a mastectomy and later that year chose a complete hysterectomy.  Being Triple Positive (HER2+, which is a more aggressive form), she chose to be proactive in her fight.   Thru God's helping hands, she beat the ''beast'' not once but twice, and started Fight Club Survivor. 

Jeanne is a wife and a mother of 2, plus has many fur babies (even those that don't have fur, but feathers and shells).  Fight Club Survivor has become her full time job, however, her time is "in-kind donation".  She also runs a local clothing drive at her church.  Don't forget to add on care giving to the elderly, we'd say Jeanne has a pretty full plate!  That being said, being the entrepreneur she is, and the need for an income, she has started another company called Universal Call-in Center, a company located here in the USA.  UCiC is a live answering service (currently Jeanne is a Live Rep) for both personal and business use.  "My goal with UCiC is to have it become a real, successful, "stay at home" type of job so I can 'employ' others who have the desire to work from home and still help contribute to the bills.  I've got ladies that want to join, now we just need small businesses to employ our services!"  https://www.universalcallincenter.com 

Oh, Jeanne isn't done yet, because of her and her daughter's love for jewelry, ​Jeanne has also recently joined Paparazzi!  She wants women to know that they too can be Affordably Beautiful!  https://paparazziaccessories.com/308486/

Definitely a full plate...but no matter what Jeanne does, one thing is certain, she is always thinking of others and how she can help.

Jeanne states regularly when discussing the organization to others, usually thru tears, "While God allows me to be vertical, I'm going to pay it forward.  I want to remind them who they're fighting for and that one way or another, they too will get through this."  Inspiration is her middle name!  No, just kidding, it's not, but she has inspired many and has hopes to continue inspiring for a long time to come...God willing.  
Ladies, I've been where you are.  Perhaps the diagnosis was not the same, but the living thru it was. 
​I am here for you.  FCS is here for you."  
​ - Jeanne Wokurka (FCS Founder/CEO/Survivor)


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.
