Your Impact


We are proud to announce that more than $210,000 has been raised through the Mac & Cheese Festival to date. These funds will directly support adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer research and programming at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James).

Funds generated from the Mac and Cheese Festival will directly support the Fertility Preservation and Reproductive Health (FPRH) program at OSUCCC – James. This program works to address barriers to care and improve the fertility and reproductive health of adolescent and young adult patients receiving cancer treatments that affect future fertility. Additionally, funds from the event will support a new National Oncofertility Conference, to be held May 18, 2019, which will bring physicians and staff from across the country together to share treatment and research updates.

Thank you 2019 Event Sponsors
