CHAIRMAN & CO-FOUNDER

Vince Todd, Jr.

vtoddjr@heroesfoundation.org

I wanted to do something to fight this disease that affected me and so many others. The competitive spirit and support of those around me fueled this desire and was the spark that ignited the Heroes Foundation.

Cindy Todd

Vince and I started fundraising for cancer when he was going through his own cancer fight. My mom lost her third battle with cancer shortly after Vince finished his treatments. I’m fighting cancer because it causes so much pain for a lot of people. It takes loved ones away too soon.

I fight cancer so I can stand by and support my loved ones who have or are currently battling this terrible disease. I also fight for my children, so that one day they will not know the pain and heartache of losing someone to cancer.

Through Team JOEY LEGO gives and events, I’ve seen the impact Heroes Foundation has to relieve stress and bring smiles to patients and families. As a cancer caregiver and survivor, I know how important these services are.

My mom, Connie Rufenbarger, inspires me to fight cancer. She is a two-time breast cancer survivor and has dedicated her life to funding research for better treatments and ultimately a cure.

I fight cancer for my children’s generation and future generations. I hope for a future where this disease and the sadness it causes are a distant memory.

Bob Treash

For many years, I have assisted organizations in raising money to fight cancer. Three years ago, the battle became personal when I was diagnosed with colon cancer. Because of this, I want to more directly assist the Heroes Foundation to bring hope to others.

James Hinshaw

Fighting cancer is personal for me. I am a cancer warrior – having fought my own fight with bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma) back in 2011, and having recently lost my dad to brain cancer (glioblastomas) in 2018. It’s such a devastating battle that follows the diagnosis, and I am excited to be part of an organization that provides support to other warriors and their caregivers – and that funds the cutting edge research that is so necessary to getting ahead of the disease.
Cortez Labs

Andru Creighton

I fight cancer for my Mom and for everyone impacted by the terrible disease. The fight against cancer does not stop until Cancer and Survivor go hand in hand.
Eli Lilly and Company

Kara Clinton

I fight for cancer for the privilege of knowing many people who have won and lost their battle with this disease and the ability to make any future battles easier and more hopeful.

Daniel Abdallah

I fight cancer because I want to build a brighter future for prevention and treatment.
Indiana University School of Nursing

Julie Otte, PhD, RN, OCN

I fight cancer in honor of all of the patients and families I have cared for in my 23 years as an oncology nurse and to work with Heroes to educate Hoosiers on the impact of cancer prevention and control.

Matt King

I choose to fight cancer because losing is not an option.

I enjoy being part of an organization legitimately committed to bringing comfort and aid to people during one of the worst times imaginable in their lives.

Amy Frizzell

Rarely is an individual immune from knowing someone affected by cancer. When deciding where to give my time, talent and treasure, I chose Heroes for our approach to serving local families and supporting local research development.

Renita Haines

My participation in the Heroes Foundation stems from compassion and hope for cancer patients in their journey. Not knowing the answers does not mean they do not exist.

Steven Peachey Jr.

A number of my family members have been diagnosed with cancer. Being a member of the Heroes team is my way of contributing to the fight against this horrible disease.

I fight cancer in honor of two amazing women who helped me in my life and left the world a better place. Thank you, Marjorie Marshall and Anne Clark. You are loved and missed.

Dr. Jason Schaffer

Fighting cancer means taking control of decisions and each step of the fight. The Heroes Foundation is about the entire fight against cancer: prevention, navigation, support and research.

Joseph Todd

I’m inspired to fight cancer by my brother and sister-in-law, Vince and Cindy. Their commitment to giving back to the cancer community after their successful fight is incredibly motivational. They’ve made such an amazing impact on cancer-fighting efforts in Central Indiana.
Catherine Todd

Dr. Catherine Todd

After watching my brother’s efforts to beat lymphoma, I’ve come appreciate the long journey ahead of those receiving a cancer diagnosis. I hope to lend my experience in public health to the Foundation’s efforts toward research and prevention to further their goals.

Cancer has touched all of our lives,  in the loss of a parent, child, relative, partner, or friend.   I want to be part of something bigger than myself and help those who most need our help.   The Heroes Foundation is doing this now through cancer Prevention, Support, and Research,  there is no better and bigger cause.
