Axley Announces Campaign to Fight Cancer

January 17, 2018

Axley is taking on its toughest opponent yet, inside or outside the courtroom. With nearly 1.7 million people diagnosed with cancer in the United States last year, the Axley family is hoping to do its part in the fight against cancer by raising funds through their Axley vs. Cancer campaign.

The fight with cancer got incredibly personal at Axley in 2017, with four members of the Axley family fighting the disease, and many more impacted. Since the firm obviously can’t battle cancer in court, Axley will be donating money to the group of brilliant, talented doctors and researchers that can fight it at the Carbone Cancer Center.

For every public post shared from January 18th through February 4th, World Cancer Day, Axley will donate $50, up to $10,000, to the Carbone Cancer Center for Cancer Research. Posts can include lists of those in your life impacted by cancer, words of support or encouragement for anyone fighting cancer, cancer stories, or anything relevant to the fight. These posts will need to include the hashtag #AXLEYvsCANCER to be counted towards the campaign.

The funds donated will also be matched by Brian and Pam Mullins, who recently started the Brian W. Mullins Renal Cell Carcinoma Research Fund.

Join the fight starting January 18th and let’s make a difference together: #AXLEYvsCANCER.
