The Cancer Care Cup is a golf charity outing designed by Danny and Gina Terril to raise money to benefit the oncology patients and caregivers of IU Health North Hospital. The proceeds from the Cancer Care Cup will assist patients and families with everyday expenses they incur while battling this awful disease. As a Pancreatic cancer survivor my family and I know firsthand the impact a cancer diagnosis has spiritually, physically, emotionally and financially. In 2012 at the age of 39 I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, probably one of the most deadly of all types of cancers. While pancreatic cancer survival rates have been improving the disease is still considered largely incurable. For all stages of pancreatic cancer combined, the one year relative survival rate is 20% and the five year rate is 7%.

By the grace of God, the support of my family and the care of IU Health North Hospital I am here today working to “Pay It Forward” with the Cancer Care Cup golf charity outing. My family and I are motivated to help support patients and caregivers in their time of need, believing “No One Fights Alone.” With your help and support the Cancer Care Cup proceeds will benefit oncology patients and caregivers with the daily expenses they incur such as food, transportation, and overnight hotel stays. So I am asking you to join us whether it’s in the form of a corporate sponsorship, a golf foursome or a simple one time cash donation. Help us help those less fortunate in their time of need.

Since I have announced the Cancer Care Cup, I have been very encouraged by the number of people, companies and organizations that have stepped up to help support this great cause. The Cancer Care Cup has a Fiscal 501(c) (10) sponsor, Keystone Lodge #251, so all contributions to this event will be tax deductible to the extent allowed by the Internal Revenue Service. The Cancer Care Cup is presented by Sharp with several other corporate sponsors such as Indiana Members Credit Union, MacAllister Machinery, the Stacked Pickle, and Clover Imaging Group.

Hopefully together with your support, we can make this an annual event that will bring the community together as well as raise funds for this important initiative every year. We welcome donations for the silent auction as well. If you would like some ideas on the types of items and services to donate please contact and we can discuss a variety of options.

From myself, my family and all the volunteers we thank you for your time, your contribution and support. I look forward to seeing you in August, and remember “NO ONE FIGHTS ALONE.”

God Bless,

Danny Terril
Pancreatic Cancer Survivor
