|The Mackinac Island Cancer Fund was created by Island businesses and residents to provide assistance to those battling cancer. In 2013, a group of Mackinac Island business women got together and started the Mackinac Island Women's Wellness and Wee Bit O' Wine Weekend. While planning the event, they were inspired to give back to women in our community.
This fund will provide short-term direct financial aid to island residents undergoing cancer treatment. Because millions of dollars are being raised for early detection, research and programs for the medically disadvantaged, it is important to assist those facing cancer with urgently needed financial help now.
Donation boxes are spread throughout downtown in island businesses or you can donate through the MICF website. Attend the Women's Wellness & a Wee Bit O' Wine weekend October 16-18, 2015 to support the MICF Cancer Fund.
