Founded in 2009, Dancers Unite Against Cancer features professional dance performances, a dance party with a local DJ, live music, dinner and an “Opportunity to Make a Difference” for the Nancy Falco Fund.
Nancy Falco was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March 2009 and passed away on May 25, 2009. Although Nancy passed away two weeks before the event held in her honor, this initiative gave her a renewed sense of love and hope in her final days.
As Nancy’s daughter, Joline Falco, explains “The Nancy Falco Fund was created as a way of keeping Mom’s legacy alive. Dancers Unite Against Cancer was created in her honor as a positive way for our family to get through the anniversary of her death. Our hope is that it will give someone facing a cancer diagnosis a way to feel like a star for the day. Mom was so touched by our efforts; she fought so hard to make it to the event. Cancer is not selective; it can happen to anyone. How we get through it is the real challenge. We at the Nancy Falco Fund and Dancers Unite Against Cancer strive to be a positive part of that journey.”
The Nancy Falco Fund Limited (NFF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to providing financial aid, love and hope to cancer patients. Each year the NFF donates 100% of the profits from Dancers Unite Against Cancer ticket sales, Downtown Village Marketplace and personal donations to a Georgia resident currently experiencing the financial hardship associated with a cancer diagnosis.
