PvC – Players vs. Cancer – brings together gamers to raise awareness and funds for lifesaving cancer research with a shared goal of eradicating cancer.
We know that a gamer’s passion can be contagious. PvC provides opportunities for you to get others excited about defeating all types of cancer for everyone. PvC fundraising efforts benefit the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR).
Where Does Your Donation Go?
The AACR is the first and largest cancer research organization in the world dedicated to preventing and curing ALL types of pediatric and adult cancers. The AACR is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that takes great care in placing your donation where it truly belongs: in the hands of scientists working on breakthroughs in cancer research.
Eighty-eight cents of every dollar raised by the AACR supports cancer research. Where does the other 12 cents go? Rest assured that we’re not spending it on V-Bucks or flashy ad campaigns. It goes toward keeping the lights on.
One in three people will develop cancer in their lifetime. Will it be you, a friend, a loved one? Maybe not if we battle this together today!
The good news is that cancer researchers are working hard every day to create lifesaving treatments and new approaches to cancer prevention.
Due to their efforts, the outlook for cancer patients is better than ever before.

Did you know that certain ethnic and racial groups suffer from higher cancer rates than the general population?
For example, Black men have a 111% higher risk of dying from prostate cancer and Hispanic women are 69% more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer at an advanced stage than their white counterparts.
To produce research that can reduce these gaps, it’s crucial to have well-trained researchers from the populations that suffer from cancer more. That’s why the Players vs. Cancer (PvC) community is coming together to raise money to support the careers of young minority scientists in cancer research.
We’re asking you to join PvC from September 10th-17th in promoting better cancer outcomes for everyone during the Play To End Cancer Inequities fundraising event. The PvC Team will equip you with the tools you need to raise funds and awareness for this critical cause. You can also earn PvC gear while fundraising, even a Vertagear gaming chair.
So far this year, the PvC streaming community has raised over $30,000 to support lifesaving cancer research through the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). With your help, we are looking forward to raising $10,000 more during this event!
