It began as an impromptu fundraising group comprised of Brian Piccolo’s friends, family members and NFL teammates. Today it's a thriving nonprofit organization that has raised more than $8.3 million for cancer research since it kicked off in 1970.

The Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund generously supports cancer research at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, focusing primarily on prevention and treatment of breast and other cancers that affect women. Important sources of funding include the Gavers Community Cancer Foundation, the Chicago Bears through the NFL Charities program, memorial gifts and donations from individuals and organizations across the country.

Please consider supporting us as we continue the battle against cancer by making a donation via our secure online giving form, or by contacting Sarah Finnegan, fund coordinator, at 1700 W. Van Buren St., Suite 250, Chicago, IL 60612 or by phone at (312) 563-4953.
