The Ruth Cheatham Foundation champions adolescents in their fight against cancer, while inspiring hope and providing resources for survivors to excel throughout their lifetime.

Founded in 2016 to honor Ruth Cheatham, a remarkable woman who fearlessly fought cancer for over ten years.  Ruth was an inspiration and mentor to many youth in North Texas.   So in keeping with her fire and spirit, The Ruth Cheatham Foundation was established to give support and a voice to teens with cancer.

Our Mission is simple Advocacy, Education and Financial Aid for young adults in all stages of the cancer battle.
