What is Throwing Bones?

Throwing Bones works hard to make a difference in the cancer community. We do this by holding these six key values:

Awareness

Throwing Bones is committed to building global awareness of purposeful movement as part of treatment and lifestyle for individuals living with cancer and those who care for them.

Community

We value a diverse, global community built on partnerships with healthcare professionals, individuals living with cancer and all those inspired by the mission of the organization.

Persistence

We never give up. We keep moving forward, whether that means baby steps or small leaps, we persevere. We believe in progress not perfection. 

Service

When we keep moving forward and act in service to others, we believe anything is possible.

Patient-Focused

We provide patient-centric programs backed by science and health research accessible to all individuals at any stage of treatment. We encourage patients to be part of their treatment through advocacy, education and healthcare provider collaboration.

Movement

Activity and purposeful movement are powerful and often under-prescribed and under-valued treatments for cancer.

Our mission.

Throwing Bones’ mission is to educate and advocate for individuals living with cancer to help them be cancer active and improve their quality of life through healthy and active lifestyles.

Cancer in the United States.

How to make a change.

Through education, we can bring the dangers, treatments, and statistics of cancers to the forefront. 

Movement

Movement, fitness, and keeping up with personal health is one of the best ways to effectively fight cancers.

The more who know about cancers, the better we can fight it. With your commitment and donations, anything is possible.

Differences we've made.

Cancers do not discriminate in who receives a diagnosis with children and adults of all ages and abilities on this cancer journey. Throwing Bones is proud to have supporters across communities nationwide and experts throughout the medical field who advocate for our work and our vision for movement to be an accepted and celebrated part of therapy for people living with cancer.
