Several years ago, MTB Cancer Foundation was created to serve the community. MTB provides alternative events throughout the year that raises cancer awareness and recognizes the important role of the individual in their fight against cancer. While our events continually develop and change, we give everyone who is interested the opportunity to participate in events that are entertaining, inspiring and empowering. Helping those battling cancer and cancer survivors has grown to become a permanent part of the MTB community.

November is Lung and Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, among both men and women. Lung cancer claims more lives each year than do colon, prostate, ovarian and breast cancers combined. People who smoke have the greatest risk of lung cancer. Cancer color- clear/ pearl
Pancreatic cancer often has a poor prognosis, even when diagnosed early. Pancreatic cancer typically spreads rapidly and is seldom detected in its early stages, which is a major reason why it's a leading cause of cancer death. Signs and symptoms may not appear until pancreatic cancer is quite advanced and complete surgical removal isn't possible.- Cancer Color- purple
