Welcome to The Ruth Cheatham Foundation

Providing advocacy, education, financial aid, and most importantly hope to adolescents in need. 

 

There are approximately 72,000 adolescents and young adults diagnosed with cancer every year. That's one every eight minutes.  Young adults are now the most underserved patient population by age in the US.

 

What we do

The Ruth Cheatham Foundation is an advocacy, non-profit organization established to honor and continue the work of a beautiful wife, mother, aunt, and friend Ruth Cheatham.  Ruth had a passion for literature, education, and mentoring the youth of North Texas.  We strive to continue with that mission by providing educational devices to those battling through treatment and much needed financial support that survivors need to complete their college education.
