On Saturday, Syracuse University senior Claire Greenbaum along hosted a F**k Cancer event raising over $10,000 to go towards cancer research with her friends.

The Greenbaum family started the F**k Cancer organization in 2010, after losing their mother to ovarian cancer. Claire, has been a part of the organization since the age of 14. The organization is active in the United States and in Canada, where Greenbaum is from.

The nonprofit aims to not only raise money for cancer research, detection and prevention, but bring the community together to empower those who have been affected by cancer. Saturday’s event took place at DJ’s On The Hill, the popular student bar on Marshall Street. The entrance fee for the event was a pre-ordered T-shirt displaying the F**k Cancer logo.
