I just wanted to give people an ordinary tool they could use to accomplish extraordinary things for the people they care about most.

Cancer. It’s literally a matter of life-and-death; and those fighting it must do all they can to get well. Well-wishers, prayer warriors and good neighbors may abound, but few truly understand the least-talked about part of the battle: fear of mounting medical bills.

Nick Fama would know. He was diagnosed a year and a half ago with terminal lung cancer.

"I have been through very difficult treatments and I know firsthand what a financial burden it can be when you are sick," he says. "People used to hold bake sales and spaghetti dinners to raise money to help others but, unfortunately, sometimes that’s just not enough. The average cancer patient spends $8,500 out of pocket in just the first year of treatment."

So out of his own personal hardship, Nick decided to give people an easy way to really help the people they care about, and DonationRocket.com was born.

DonationRocket.com is an online donation website that helps people raise money to help pay for medical bills and other life-altering events like accidents, tragedies, sickness or maybe a house fire or job loss. It’s also a great fundraising tool for life’s much happier events, such as weddings and graduations.

"I just wanted to give people an ordinary tool they could use to accomplish extraordinary things for the people they care about most," says Nick.

Designed to be easy to use, DonationRocket.com helps people and groups (nonprofit or not) find ways to provide financial support to their friends, family, colleagues and neighbors in need.

DonationRocket.com uses a simple, secure donation processing, along with all of the tools and helpful resources to help you raise money for your cause.
