The Cancer Warriors for Central Nevada are a group of locals who want to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families. They host fundraising events like the recent Raffle Ride and the Redneck Shindig in the fall to raise money for the selected recipients to help out wherever they need it the most. Of the funds raised, 90 percent goes directly to the recipients to use how they need and the remaining 10 percent stays with the organization to help fund the next event. Cancer Warriors would like to see the funds stay local to help those in the Central Nevada area. The only requirements for the patients are that they verify they have cancer and that they live in the central counties of Nevada. Cancer Warriors randomly chooses a few patients for each event to have the most beneficial help for each of the patients.

The group is currently accepting nominations for recipients. Also this organization is run by volunteers, and we can always use more. Cancer Warriors is currently planning the third annual Redneck Shindig on Sept. 20. For information, call 775-629-2629 or email
