The John Hemmings Cancer Foundation, Inc. is a local, non-profit organization. The Foundation’s namesake, John Hemmings, was a prominent local banker and community activist, who died of lung cancer in December 2004. In 2005, many of John’s co-workers and friends united in John’s memory to participate in the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life. The team organized a purse auction as a fundraising event. The first purse auction was held at Be Dillon’s Cactus Garden in 2005 – a small event with 30 women in attendance. With each passing year the unique event expanded and the group began to explore ways to honor John’s memory by serving the community he so loved. This led to the formation of the John Hemmings Cancer Foundation in 2011. The Foundation consists of a 6 member Board of Directors, as well as a team of dedicated volunteers who generously devote their time to ensuring the annual purse auction i s a success. The John Hemmings Cancer Foundation is committed to assisting cancer patients and their families in Pinal County. In 2012, the John Hemmings Cancer Foundation partnered with the local Cancer Treatment Services Support Center to establish a smoking cessation program which is available free of charge to members of the community.
