In the fall of 2006, Brian Conner, a lifelong Rush County resident, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer. As a result, it didn’t take long to exceed his insurance coverage. Upon learning this, a group of family and friends within the community converged and began raising funds to help cover medical costs that Brian could not afford after his insurance had reached the maximum amount of coverage. This group became known as “Brian’s Cause” and decided this would become an ongoing effort knowing there will be other “Brian’s” from this community who will need the same aid and support shown to Brian. In 2019, this Fund distributed $20,000 locally to cancer patients.
In 2020 we are going virtual!
All proceeds benefit the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation and Brian’s Cause Cancer Treatment Relief Fund
