A cancer diagnosis is hard on everyone.

  • Would you like to pay it forward?

Mission 212 Foundation

Purple isn’t the manliest color, so you might wonder why an organization dedicated to serving men is covered in it.  Each type of cancer is associated with a unique color.

Austin Hill, the founder of Mission 212 Foundation, was diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer, represented by lavender.  We’ve designed our logos and marketing around this lavender color while also trying to beef it up with a more masculine feel.  We like it, and we hope you do too!

Through the application process, Mission 212 Foundation selects a family with young children in need, more specifically in cases where the man in the family has been diagnosed with cancer. 

The primary focus is to serve the family.

About 80,000 young adults aged 20 to 39 are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States.

  • 5% of all cancers are diagnosed in people in this age range.
  • About 9,000 young adults die from cancer each year. Cancer is the 4th leading cause of death in this age group, behind only accidents, suicide, and homicide.
  • The cancer mortality rate is higher among men than women (189.5 per 100,000 men and 135.7 per 100,000 women).

After learning about Mission 212 we were excited to become a corporate sponsor. Men often don’t ask for help. Mission 212 is determined to be the help they would normally not ask for. Mission 212 is driven by the patients needs. It is about donating what you can to help serve others.
